Please join us in the main conference room at the Easton Public Library on Morehouse Road in Easton on Sunday, October 27th at 4:00 PM for a presentation by Ed Hynes on the 1777 Raid on Danbury and the subsequent Battle of Ridgefield. April of 1777 saw the only British forces pass through what is today’s Easton on their way to capture the Continental Armies storehouses in Danbury. Learn about the march and the confrontations between the opposing forces. Admission is free, however donations to the Historical Society of Easton are most appreciated.

    I am wondering if the Easton Historical Society is responsible for repairing the Union Cemetery. If I am correct, my family is very interested in helping with that. Feel free to contact me. Thank you. Jennifer

      Union is an active cemetery that is incorporated with the State of Connecticut. They are solely responsible for taking care of that facility although I’m sure they would welcome donations to help with the repair of the damage from the recent vandalism. The closed cemeteries – Lyon, Den, Center and Gilbertown – are maintained by the town’s Cemetery Association.
