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).
