State Theatre - This history of the theatre began in 1873 when the Northampton Nation Bank was built on the site where the theatre now stands. The bank was demolished and the theatre was
constructed in 1910 and named the Neumeyer Theatre. The name changed several times over the next few years before finally settling with the State. Over the years, the theatre evolved from a
Vaudeville stage to adding a screen for movies while continuing to host live shows of all kinds. Several employees and visitors have reported seeing a ghost of a man. "Freddy", as he has been
affectionately named, is probably J. Fred Osterstock, a distinguished looking gentleman who managed the company that owned the theatre from 1936-1965.   In 2003, the State Theatre honored FRED
by naming the Annual FREDDY AWARDS after him - an awards ceremony that recognizes outstanding achievement in local high school theater. To read the complete story of "Freddie", clink the

Easton Public Library - During construction of this building in 1903, workers uncovered the graves of 514 people. Most of the bodies were moved to other cemeteries, but at
least thirty were left unclaimed. Two prominent former citizens, Elizabeth Bell "Mammy" Morgan who died Oct 16, 1839 and William Parsons who died Dec. 17, 1737 were
reburied in graves with markers on the library grounds. Mammy Morgan is buried on the west lawn and Parsons is buried on the front lawn. The other corpses, and any
unidentified pieces of bodies, were unceremoniously dumped into an underground concrete vault on the property. Today, the library is haunted by the misplaced souls. Doors
slam shut and open suddenly, filing cabinet drawers swing open for no reason, and unseen hands run through the hair or touch the shoulders of patrons and staff. Over the years,
many people have reported the ghost of Mammy Morgan, roaming the library grounds. The burial vault is under a telltale depression in the northeast part of the driveway that
exits the
library.
