Tucked beside the Kittatinny Mountains in the beautiful valley of the Paulinskill River, Blairstown combines the charm of an 1800s agrarian village with many amenities of a 21st-century community. Named for its most famous resident, noted American industrialist and railroad builder John Insley Blair, it was incorporated in 1845. Known for the college preparatory academy that bears Blair's name, the heritage and history of this community has long been appreciated by its residents. Through vintage postcards from their own collections and supplementary material, the authors invite you to step back in time to visit Blairstown and the neighboring villages of Hope, Hardwick, Johnsonburg, and Marksboro in an era when the horse and buggy took you to local destinations and the railroad was your passport to the larger world.
