Founded in 1968, the Historical Society strives to preserve and catalog Easton artifacts and archival materials while encouraging community engagement and education through lectures, events and programs.
The Society is a certified non-profit 501(c)(3) organization currently managing two historic properties in Easton. This includes the Adams Schoolhouse, a one-room schoolhouse (circa 1850) and the Bradley-Hubbell House and Farmstead (circa 1816) which is listed on both the Connecticut and National Registers of Historic Places. The story of this property is shared in a rare manuscript written by John Dimon Bradley, a descendant who lived on the property as a boy in the early 1800’s. In it, he describes in detail his family’s farming activities. Interested in reading about life in 19th century Easton? Pick up a copy of Dimon Bradley’s story at Greiser’s Coffee & Market on Center Road. While you are there, pick up a copy of the reproduced 1867 Frederick W. Beers Map of Easton.
