Did you know Blackstone wasn’t always called Blackstone? Its first name was Blacks and Whites, after two rival tavern keepers. One was named White, and the other one was named Schwartz, which is German for “black.” It was renamed Bellefonte in the 19th century to match the name of the local train station, then again named Blacks and Whites, and finally named Blackstone in 1886.
The Schwartz Tavern, built-in 1798 and added onto in 1840, still stands, fully restored and open for tours. It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Blackstone was the home of Camp Pickett (later Fort Pickett), which was a large training center for the U.S. Army during World War II. It is currently the Army National Guard’s Maneuver Training Center.
Some notable natives and residents include:
“Thomas Brothers really came through for our family! We recently moved into a house with propane and had not yet called them for a checkup when we ran out of propane for our hot water heater. The office got us set up with an account and same-day delivery. Danny and Stevie came out to our house that afternoon. Got us filled us up, showed me how to check the gauge, and set me up for Automatic Delivery so we can be taken care of in the future. They didn’t leave until they had guaranteed that hot water was coming through the taps. They were friendly and knowledgeable, and we certainly appreciated their help!” – Ellen M.
“Wonderful company with a terrific staff! Quick to make deliveries!” – Cora W.
