Burton Hall was erected in 1901 through the generosity of Isaac Burton. It became the center for numerous community activities. From 1902 to 1955 Burton Hall housed the Easton Library and the name was changed to Burton Free Library. When the library moved to its new location, the charter was changed back to Easton Library again. Presently, Burton Hall houses town offices and is the principal meeting place for many functions.
Easton United Methodist Church:
The first organization of the Methodist Church in Easton was at Crandalls Corners in 1824 when meetings were held in the homes or at the schoolhouse. The present day white, two-story church in North Easton was completed in 1850. Its 600-pound bell, installed in 1899, was cast in Troy, N.Y. The cross-and-flame emblem adopted by the United Methodist Church in 1982 has special meaning to the Easton church. It symbolizes the declaration of a circuit rider preacher serving Easton in 1790: “a flame of fire runs through the heart of these people.”
