Treaty of Easton

The Treaty of Easton Pageant  will take place on the History Stage at 1:00 p.m.  This family-friendly play, with participation from kids from the audience, highlights the important 1758 Treaty of Easton that brought around 500 Indian warriors to Easton to discuss with  British government officials  which side they would take in the current French and Indian War.

As a result of the treaty signed here in Easton, the Indians stopped attacking settlements in support of the French.  As a result of promises made here in Easton, the British opposed settlers moving into the lands in the west that had been promised to the Indians.

Treaty of Easton

This performance is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. and will take you back to the the time when Easton was still a small frontier village and hosted hundreds of Indians who had been on the warpath against settlers. The portrayal of the British solders and the Indians is done by children recruited from the audience. If you want to see your child perform in a play that recreates an important part of Easton’s history, listen for the announcement following the Declaration of Independence reading at noon.
