User submitted facts and corrections:

  • Easton is divided into downtown Easton (population 26k) which is the population you have listed. However, it also includes palmer township (population 16k) (which includes the listing for OLD ORCHARD....old orchard is a small portion of palmer), Wilson (population 7600), Forks (population 8,000), Williams (population 3,000) and Martins Creek (population 1,000). I figured I would foward this info to you because most of the schools are outside Easton Downtown. Pennsylvania has a very odd way of keeping population stats. All these parts of Easton pay Easton Taxes and receive Easton services, including attending Easton Schools. added by Sally
  • There is a Catholic Church in Palmer Township. Saint Jane Frances de Chantal is located at 4049 Hartley Ave. Easton PA 18045 (Palmer Township). added by John
