Please Mister Postman

It was the Summer of 1961 when Please Mister Postman became the first Motown song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart. Almost everyone knows the lyrics to this classic tune by The Marvelettes. How could we not?

As you travel around to various destinations, whether they are local, within the country or around the world, we ask that you mail us a Postcard for inclusion in our Living History exhibit.

Write to us at:
Blairstown Museum
26 Main Street PO Box 109
Blairstown, NJ 07825

We are excited to hear from you and to add your correspondence to our collection for future generations to read and enjoy. By mailing us, you instantly become a part of history.

Isn't that fabulous?

Is there a letter in your bag for me?

If you're traveling to the greater Blairstown area, be sure to stop by the Blairstown Museum to purchase a Postcard to send to your friends and family members. We have four historic scenes to choose from; including four Friday the 13th inspired postcards.
