Easton … A Quaint, Quiet and Pleasant Community
One of the most rural towns of Fairfield County, located just north of Fairfield and the Merritt Parkway is the Town of Easton. This quiet community is little changes from the time when it was settled in 1757. Half of it is covered by three scenic reservoirs and 7,500 acres of tree covered watershed. There is no industry or commerce, no apartments or condominiums. Three acre zoning throughout most of the town ensures privacy for the residences which range from early colonials to traditional and contemporary new homes. Continuing its New England heritage, Easton maintains a Board of Selectmen/Town Meeting form of government in which elected Boards and Commissions administer the general business of the town.
