Easton Phillips

Originally from the beautiful city of Cincinnati, Easton Philip’s historical journey began with the Youth Docent program at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. After studying History at the University of Cincinnati he was hired as a Research associate at Conner Prairie in October 2021. When faced with the question of how to share the stories of Conner Prairie to those who have never experienced it or for our local community to dive deeper into topics, the podcast quickly became a perfect vehicle for historians like Easton to share their expertise, and the best is yet to come!
