Blairstown Historic Preservation Committee's History Month 2018 continues! Blairstown's rich heritage will be on display Wednesday, May 16th from the archives of the Blairstown Historic Preservation Committee. Since our founding in 2001 we have been fortunate to have been the recipients of many important donations of Blairstown memorabilia and artifacts. We are thankful to have been entrusted as the stewards of these artifacts and the provenance that is connected with them. These collections were donated to the township and are the property of the people of Blairstown. We are happy to have the items on display for the public to see during this Heritage Open House. The artifacts can also been viewed throughout the year in our lobby displays and our traveling exhibits.
Our Heritage Open House will feature the donations of the Bowers/Huff, Walters, Stoffels, Reichert/Hill, Mott/Raub, Land, Shotwell, Sikkes, Stiles, Jones, LaBar and Allen families amongst others. We thank these families for their donations and sharing of provenance!
Be sure to see our other event listings for BHPC's May 2018 History Month: Founders' Day, Footbridge Tour, "Blairstown's Four Names" and Veterans' Tribute and Tour at Cedar Ridge Cemetery. We are looking forward to seeing you at these events! A reminder that our events are FREE and presented as a community service by the volunteers of the Blairstown Historic Preservation Committee.
