Review Blairstown Township
It's great in Blairstown. Very quiet and clean, pleasant town. Friendly people and very nice scenery.
I raised my kids in Blairstown, because I wanted them to be able to play outside, hike in the mountains and fish in the local river. It is a great place to connect as a family. I love my neighbors and I know I can count on them, if I ever need them.
