Easton is an area of great character and heritage. The town's outer border is adjacent to the major highways of I-495 and 95. Commuter rail service to Boston's Back Bay and South Stations is available from the neighboring towns of Mansfield and Stoughton. These options provide convenience for those planning to commute to either Providence or Boston, New England's largest cities.
Easton's long history is intimately connected with the many generations of the Ames family, and the Ames Shovel Company dating back to 1803. The family is credited with activating the town's initial economy, as well as contributing to the architectural style of the town, donating several noted buildings including Oakes Ames Memorial Hall, the Ames Free Library, and the Old Colony Railroad Station. Easton is home to Stonehill College, and enjoys the noble beauty of its 375-acre campus. Year-round the campus brings a buzzing atmosphere to the town, even during the summer months when Stonehill hosts educational and athletic camps for children. Old and new elements blend seamlessly as smart looking plazas provide dining and shopping from major retailers. Economic ventures have a home in and around the Easton Industrial Park, while small business is equally thriving due much to the efforts and support of the Easton Chamber of Commerce. With all of this, Easton remains thoroughly residential and a place where lasting memories are made.
