1753 Bachmann Publick House

Easton, Pennsylvania

The 1753 Bachmann Publick House is an Early American Living History Center located in historic downtown Easton, Pennsylvania. Built by Jacob and Katrinna Bachmann in 1753, it is Easton's oldest structure.  It is one of three restored buildings, which comprise this Early American Living History Center complex.  The two connect additional structures were built in 1800 (replacing a log structure) and in 1827. George Taylor, 30th Signer of the Declaration of Independence, owned the house from 1761 through 1780.  The Publick House has additional historical significance as the only  tavern in Northampton County remaining from the French and Indian War era, and at one time served as the first Court Room in Northampton County, where cases were held from 1754 through 1758. Fun for the entire family, this restored architectural treasure is located just one block east of Easton's other visitor attractions: The Crayola FACTORY and Store, National Canal Museum, and the Weller Center. Children and adults have the opportunity to learn, enjoy tours and exhibits (some interactive), and to browse in the soon-to-open Museum Store. Rotating displays will include period artifacts of the 18th and 19th centuries.
