History Museum
“Beautiful and spacious museum that highlights Easton and surrounding areas with local history. A treasure of a find in the museum is the history behind the Leni Lenape Indians and the treaty that is displayed bearing the fingerprints in wax of thirteen Indian Elders from various tribes to the treaty. Also curio cabinets, Victorian and Civil War artifacts and other various items, along with interactive tools in the museum. Highly suggested and affordable!”

Scenic lookouts

Scenic Lookout
“What a cool spot! You'll have to see the pictures to best understand what it is but it's a huge field (duh!) that was carved out by (what they think was) a glacier from the last ice age. You can spend a lot of time out there, it's pretty surreal.”
