Located in the “Circle” in Downtown Easton where Third Street and Northampton Street intersect the Soldiers and Sailors Monument stands. This granite monument stands at 75 feet high and has many various components which make up the monument as a whole. The memorial recognizes Easton area veterans killed during the American Civil War. Center Square was originally known as the “Great Square,” it was designed by William Parsons, who laid out Easton's streets, first surveyed in 1750, and made reality in 1752. Currently serves as the site of the Easton Farmer's Market (The oldest outdoor farmer's market in America) and many special events throughout the year such as Heritage Day, Garlic Fest, Bacon Fest, and the Peace Candle Lighting!
Heritage Day celebrates Easton’s historic significance in the founding of the United States. At noon on July 8, 1776, Easton was one of three places where the Declaration of Independence had its first public reading. It was read on the steps of the old courthouse in Easton’s historic Centre Square by the Chair of the Committee of Safety, Robert Levers. A reenactment of that event, and a festival organized around it, first occurred during the Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. From that year on, Heritage Day has been celebrated as Easton’s own Independence Day celebration. This model depicts local historian Christopher Black who performs his riveting reenactment of the reading of the Declaration of Independence in Centre Square with The Bachmann Players with an onlooking crowd at Easton Heritage Day!!
Two Rivers Brewing Company has a Mardi Gras parade with the Big Easy Easton Brass! And some other surprises too! This historic building was built in three sections. The oldest section fronts Northampton Street and dates back to approximately 1810. The middle section was built around 1850 and the rear section in the 1920’s. Earliest records we found indicated the building operated as a hotel continuously from1855 until 1994. The once Mount Vernon Hotel now serves as a local brew pub and restaurant owned by Judy and Brad Nelson and Kathy and Troy Reynard.

Easton native Jeremy Joseph created the Big Easy Easton Brass band to bring the community together.
Joseph, 43, hadn’t played with Legos since he was a youngster. His day job is serious, and he looks for community-minded projects to immerse himself in when he has free time.
Joseph grew up in Easton and now lives in Harmony Township, New Jersey. His parents still live in Easton though, and it’s a community that he feels deep ties to.

Jeremy Joseph, who also runs Big Easy Easton Brass, began looking for a way to connect band members during the pandemic.
He turned to LEGOS. He started by creating LEGO versions of the band then turned to Easton landmarks, building things like Center Square and Two Rivers Brewing, each with a lot of detail.
Joseph, who created a Facebook account for the project, said he was surprised how many people enjoyed looking at city landmarks in LEGO form.
"LEGO Easton is set in the future. It's set in a post-COVID world where I believe we'll be back to having an Easton renaissance. We'll be back to what we used to do. We'll be a community again. You've got to believe that," Joseph said.
