Local Information About Easton, Maryland
The charming town of Easton is located in Talbot County, Maryland. It encompasses an area of about 10.67 square miles. Easton proudly clings to its small-town identity even though it is not the quiet Eastern Shore village it was a century ago. In 1952 the first bridge linked both sides of the Chesapeake Bay connecting the state’s rural Eastern Shore region with the urban western shore. The original span opened in 1952 with a length of 4.3 miles (6.9 km), making it the world’s longest continuous over-water steel structure. It initiated an influx of new visitors, residents, and businesses never before experienced on the Delmarva Peninsula. The Delmarva Peninsula is an East Coast portmanteau made up of parts of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. The land, people, language, culture and food are distinctive to their area. There is a distinctive “island” mentality of the long time residents. People come to Easton to visit or to live for many reasons. Part of the town’s enduring appeal is its ability to retain a small-town ambiance while, at the same time, offering as much more than larger communities. A special combination of services and amenities, along with its rich history and physical attractiveness, are reasons why Easton has been singled out as one of the best small towns in America. The climate in this area is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters.
There are many historical buildings throughout Easton whose history stretches back to before the Revolutionary War. In 1710 by the Assembly of the Province of Maryland designated the area, which would become Easton as the site for a new courthouse to serve the pre-Revolution population of sea merchants and farmers.

Some say that Easton has more 4-5 star restaurants than any other small town in the country. At the southern end of Easton is the Idlewild Park, a new and innovative playground that was built through community donations and an extraordinary volunteer labor. New companies have moved into the area stepping in to provide prospects for the new jobs after the Black and Decker assembly plant, at one time one of the county’s largest employers, closed its doors.
