Easton was originally known as Eastin, and under the latter name was laid out in 1854 by General Lucien J. Eastin. Later, at the insistence of the territorial Governor Andrew Horatio Reeder, the name was changed to Easton for Reeder's birthplace of Easton, Pennsylvania. The first post office in Easton was established in December 1855.
