Spiritof76 is starting out the new year with a new format - one
aimed at better presenting our readership with an increasing archive of
18th century online resources. Previous constraints to past
publications have since been lifted, and we are making every effort to
take advantage of the potential this publication has to offer. The
internet is a vast resource, and our goal is to bring 18th century America
and the american revolution to our readers in a format that is
informative, educational and entertaining. We welcome your comments
and suggestions, and as this site continues to develop, we hope that
it does so with the help and guidance of our readers.

structure has been a witness to Easton's entire development from its
infancy as a frontier village to the present day. Throughout its 248
years the building has stood in both active and abandoned states and has
housed a variety of businesses all the while retaining 80% of its original
fabrication. now owned by the Easton Heritage Alliance, the exterior
renovation of the building was recently completed and work has begun on
the interior. we will be revisiting the progress of the Bachmann
project in feature articles throughout the coming months.
