Happy New Year!

Hello and New Year's Greetings to all! 2016 was a wonderful year for the Easton Historical Society and Museum, and I am looking forward to a terrific 2017 full of surprises, events, and visitors. Last night I was watching a bit of television and had a pleasant surprise. An old show, "The Equalizer" starring Edward Woodward (as Robert MaCall) was on. This particular episode was titled "Starfire" and the plot involved MaCall protecting a top secret aerospace engineer.

Historical Happenings

Hello everyone, The flag at the Society is flying at half-staff in honor of all those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor seventy-five years ago today. My mother-in-law who is 89 can remember being in school in Brockton when the announcement came across the intercom.
