Easton is home to nearly 7,500 residents and is located in the heart of Fairfield County. It has retained much of the rural character that has attracted residents for decades.
North Fairfield, a part of the town of Fairfield, land was purchased from the Aspetuck Indians in 1670 for thirty pounds and an amount of trucking cloth.
In 1762, the Connecticut General Assembly established the parish of North Fairfield. The Legislature in 1787 combined the parishes of North Fairfield and Norfield into the town of Weston.
In 1845, the former parish of North Fairfield was divided from Weston and became Easton. It is still governed by the town meeting.
