Did You Know: Post Office Name Game

Here is your weekly historical fact, courtesy of the Easton Historical Society.

DID YOU KNOW that the post office that opened on Turnpike Street in 1888 had three names within one year.  It was first called Easton Turnpike, then Sequassett, and finally Eastondale. Sequassett was the Native American name for that part of Easton.  However, that name for the post office lasted less than a year, and Eastondale became its official name by the spring of 1889.
