The essence of history in Easton and the surrounding areas begins with the Leni-Lanape People. They were recognized as “The Grandfathers” by other tribes.
We are fortunate that they have a cultural center here on the Northampton Street level of the Bachmann, which is open to the public most Saturdays from 11:00-3:00.
History of the
1753 Bachmann Publick House
On the northeast corner of Northampton and 2nd streets, is the 1753 Bachmann Publick House, the oldest remaining building in Easton. The land deed was secured from the Penns by Jacob Bachmann, it's Builder. The building served as a tavern, court house, and the residence for George Taylor, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

The Bachmann Players is a group of locally based amateur historians and actors. Mining the area's rich colonial history, we use letters, diaries, and other source materials to recreate the people and events of the 1700's so that they can be experienced by a modern audience.
The Players are under the artistic guidance of Christopher Black, a veteran stage actor who spent over a decade as a member of the former Jean Cocteau Classical Repertory in New York.
