Friday the 13th

He’s baaaaaack…

Did you know that Blairstown’s Historic District is featured in the 1980 horror film Friday the 13th? It’s true! 

For nearly 40 years, movie fans have visited Blairstown, Hope, and Hardwick, New Jersey to take photos in front of iconic movie locations; such as the Blairstown Museum building. Our year-round exhibit includes autographed memorabilia, Tom Savini’s “Jason” reproduction, and the original DINER letters. 

When Friday the 13th appears on the calendar, the town comes together to celebrate Blairstown’s second favorite son – Jason Voorhees! On this day, the Blairstown Museum expands its offerings to include trolley tours to authentic movie locations; expanded Slash and Shop Marketplace featuring movie inspired merchandise by local artists and crafters; free Movie-Themed Photo Booths; Weddings; and occasionally, Meet & Greet opportunities.

Be sure to look around, you never know where the real life Jason is lurking…
