Some Interesting Facts About Easton:
Easton is a pretty, pleasant suburban community now, but†Easton began its history as the rough frontier of the Taunton North Purchase and acted as the hunting, fishing and lumbering preserve of early Taunton settlers.† Permanent settlement by colonists about 1695 and formal establishment of†Easton in 1725 led to an impassioned controversy over the location of the†Easton meeting house, which split the early community.

The†industrial history of Easton†essentially begins with the discovery of bog iron which made Easton part of an important late 17th and 18th century iron producing region in southwestern Massachusetts.† The first commercial steel made in the colonies was said to have been made in Easton and was evidently used for muskets.† In 1803 the Ames Shovel Company was established in Easton, and became nationally known as having provided the shovels which laid the Union Pacific Railroad and opened the west.† In 1875 the shovel production of the Ames plant was worth $1.5 million.† The Ames family not only shaped the Easton's economy but also its geography and architecture. In the late 19th century, the family created a remarkable legacy by donating several landmark buildings to the town of Easton.† This was remarkable not only for its benevolence, but for its architectural significance, since the nationally known architect H.H. Richardson designed Oakes Ames Memorial Hall, the library and the Old Colony Railroad building which now houses the Easton Historical Society, in the impressive Romanesque style.† The community has carefully preserved these buildings, as part of the proud heritage of the town of Easton.† The Ames family also built shops and company housing.† In addition, Ames family estates effectively maintained large tracts of open space in Easton.

Through most of its history†Easton has retained a small but healthy industrial base that featured the production of the Morse automobile between 1902 and 1914, cotton and thread mills, machine shops making piano casings and piano machinery, and the location of the spring supplying the oldest carbonated beverage company in the country.† Despite this industrial activity, Easton remained largely rural in feeling.† Suburban development since World War II has brought in a significant number of new residents.

Located in Southeastern Massachusetts, Easton is bordered by Sharon and Stoughton on the north; Brockton and West Bridgewater on the east; Raynham, Taunton, and Norton on the south and southwest; and Mansfield on the west.† Easton is located 4 miles west of Brockton, 24 miles south of Boston, and 201 miles from New York City.† The Cleaning Lady, Inc., is pleased to provide house cleaning, office cleaning, maid and janitorial services to the residents and businesses of Easton, MA.
