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.

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.
