HISTORIC MAIN STREET

Blairstown Historic District

First settled in the early 1700s, Blairstown, New Jersey, is a charming small town whose downtown commercial center is on the National Register of Historic Places. Buildings from the early 1800s through the early 1900s line both sides of Blairstown’s historic Main Street. The most interesting of which include the 1825 Old Mill, 1872 First Presbyterian Church and 1889 Water Works – all of which appear individually on the National Register as well. Most of the district’s architecture is Italianate, Queen Anne, Bungalow/Craftsman and Colonial Revival in style, making it an immensely picturesque location for a leisurely stroll. Stop by Main Street after visiting the new brewery down the road, local airport or seasonal farmers market and wander into Blairstown’s charming boutiques, art galleries, a museum and shoppes or enjoy a show at the recently revitalized historic theater. Blairstown’s visitors will also find a wide range of locally owned restaurants and cafes where staff and owners personally greet locals by name and make visitors feel equally welcomed.
