HISTORICAL SITE DETAILS

Easton

Easton, Pennsylvania

Easton, Pennsylvania was the place where a number of important treaties were signed during the French and Indian War. These treaties involved the colonies of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, British officials, Delaware Indians and other Native American groups. Tribes from Pennsylvania and Ohio were drawn out of their alliance with France, allowing the British army, under Gen. Forbes, to advance through Pennsylvania and capture Fort Duquesne in 1758. Visitors to Easton can see the historic town, the Mixsell Museum, the Jacob Nicholas House and visit the Illick Library.
