Easton Heritage Day

Petticoats, stays, and stockings. Breeches, garters, and wool coats. It’s a hot summer day as the beer pours, birds chirp, and the water splashes in the fountain. Muskets lean against display tables, red coats drum in alleyways, and soldiers lay in the grass with their tricorne hats covering their eyes under makeshift tents. It is 1776 in Easton’s Centre Square. This is a collection of photographs … Continue reading Easton Heritage Day
