Article, photos and video by Eric H.,

Made famous by the Ames Shovel Company which provided shovels for the Union Pacific Railroad that opened the west in 1862, North Easton Village (part of Easton), MA, is also famous for its grand H.H. Richardson architecture. With several buildings showcasing that patented Richardson 19th-century Romanesque-style design, North Easton has a look of its own -- quite distant from many of the cookie-cutter, strip mall, bland 1960s-style box buildings that can be seen in many Boston suburbs. Despite its proximity to busy Brockton and Taunton, North Easton remains a sleepy town with a laid-back downtown and wide open spaces (like the beautiful Borderland State Park and Sheep Pasture) combined with pleasant suburban and historical homes . It's really a one-of-a-kind community and a makes for a delightful walk.  We hope you enjoy this video tour of North Easton Village!
