Exhibits : Past Exhibits

The Blairstown Museum's exhibits are more than just a display of artifacts – the pieces housed within our walls convey the story of the Blairstown experience. Both diverse and unique, they prompt us to think critically and challenge our conceptions of the Greater Blairstown Area and the people who lived here.

Our permanent and rotating exhibits serve great purpose in the community. Carefully researched and impeccably presented, our themed exhibitions provide some of the best opportunities to connect with our history.

Here are some of the Blairstown Museum's past exhibits:

  • John Insley Blair Financial Exhibit
  • Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Dining Car
  • Cora Belle Kishpaugh: A Life Not Forgotten
  • Mid-to-late 19th Century Victorian Evening Gown
  • Friday The 13th: Blairstown's Second Favorite Son
  • Dining in Blairstown (1850-1950)
  • 1892 Leg-of-Mutton Sleeve Handmade Dress
  • Religion in the Village (1811-1945)
  • Pastor and Priest Robes & Vestments

We wish to thank all of our public and private donors for their contributions to past exhibits. If you would like to have your family, family member, business or memory incorporated or featured in a future exhibit please contact our Curator directly by phone at 908-362-1371 or by e-mail at info@blairstownmuseum.com.
