Where History Comes To Life

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 our previous exhibits:

» Antoine Dutot: Father of the Resort Industry
» Art, The Times We Live In
» Blair Academy: Hope on a Hill
» Blairstown Masonic Lodge: Hidden In Plain Sight
» Cora Belle Kishpaugh: A Life Not Forgotten
» Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad
» Dining in Blairstown (1850-1950)
» Friday The 13th: Blairstown’s Second Favorite Son
» John Insley Blair: Poverty to Philanthropy
» Mary Jeannette Kise: A Life Remembered
» Princeton-Blairstown Center: A Place to Grow
