Easton is a post-World War II subdivision built in 1949 to ease Winston-Salem's housing shortage. The GI Bill of 1944, which guaranteed low-interest home loans for veterans, promoted the construction of houses in new subdivisions and on vacant lots in existing neighborhoods. Easton consists of almost identical dwellings meeting strict guidelines to qualify for government-subsidized mortgages. Construction of Interstate 40 in the 1950s separated Easton from the adjacent Belview and Manhattan neighborhoods. In 1988, concerned residents founded the Easton Neighborhood Association, which engages a diverse, active, intergenerational membership to foster a pleasant and safe community.
