Product Overview

Blairstown, New Jersey lies along the summit of the Blue Mountains, and from that point down to the Valley of the Paulinskill is a succession of hills and valleys. Tammany, Chief of the Delaware, called

this area "Touockonetcoug," which means "Gem of the Paulinskill." The beautiful forests, streams, and mountains of this area make it the perfect subject for an engaging pictorial history. Images in this book include those of the first families to settle in the area, including the Blairs and the Howells. The town was named for the Honorable John I. Blair, one of its earliest prominent citizens, and was formed from a part of Knowlton Township by an act of the State Legislature in February 1845. In this collection discover Blairstown as it once was, prior to the many changes that were made in the name of progress. View original homesteads, businesses, and schools in the community, and learn about the residents who shaped its future. Photographs and postcards depicting the construction and completion

of railroad lines are shown, along with images of recreational retreats such as Silver Lake and Cedar Lake. Photographs of surrounding communities, including Delaware, Columbia, Hainesburg, Vail, Hope,

Johnsonburg, and Centerville are also included in this collection.
