Advocating for the protection and appreciation of Blair’s historic assets

Welcome to our online home

As an ADVOCATE, the Alliance seeks to promote public support for the preservation of the city’s historic assets by providing networking and informational assistance to owners of historic properties and local heritage preservation programs. It does this by aligning with other community enhancement groups to pool resources and consolidate efforts toward a common and mutual goal. To learn more about our efforts and what you can do to help, please provide your e-mail address for updates from the Alliance.

At one time, Main Street was the vibrant heart of any small community. Created by the Blair Historic Preservation Alliance and Washington County Museum, the 2023 Historic Picture Calendar will share some snapshots of Washington County Main Street sights and activities in years gone by. Historic photos from Blair, Arlington, Kennard, Fort Calhoun and Herman along with a number of rural stores that no longer exist, will be highlighted.

The 2023 Calendar is available for $10.00 at the Washington County Museum in Fort Calhoun, the Washington County Chamber of Commerce in Blair and Main Street Boutique at 1651 Washington Street in Blair.

BHPA’s Downtown Research Project

The Blair Historic Preservation Alliance seeks to preserve the history of Blair’s structures and sites through its Historic Landmark Registry by actively researching and documenting the history of each downtown building. We have collected an extensive set of images and recollections. Please view the project’s pages and enjoy a glimpse into Blair’s past. 

Do you have history to share?

The BHPA is always looking to increase the information in our archives. If you have pictures or information you would like to share, we would love to hear from you.
