The Blairstown Museum, a non-profit organization, is housed in a 19th century building, known as the last remaining structure of "Roy's Row". As the only general history and cultural museum for the Township of Blairstown, they care for thousands of items which illustrate the history of the township and its inhabitants, including former resident and founder John Insley Blair (an American entrepreneur, railroad magnate, philanthropist and one of the 19th century's wealthiest men).

Millbrook Village is a representation of a late 19th Century rural community, rather than an exact restoration of the original Millbrook that has its origins in an 1832 grist mill that soon was surrounded by other businesses and homes. This scene represents the many villages that dotted the landscape and played a special role in the growth of our country. Here we remember a way of life led by millions of Americans until they abandoned it for the cities.
