A Walking Tour of Historic Blackstone

121 N. Main Street
Blackstone, Virginia 23824


The Town of Blackstone was settled in the mid 18th century at the crossroads of several stage coach and transportation routes. The community was originally named Blacks & Whites for its two rival tavern keepers. There are approximately 100 buildings in Blackstone's historic district. As you tour Blackstone, please take time to enjoy its tree-lined streets, Seay Park (the perfect place just to sit and relax), see our historic buildings with informational plaques, and beautiful homes, and feel the sense of Southern hospitality that has long been the town's trademark. You'll meet many friendly town's people on every corner! Don't forget to visit some of our locally owned restaurants and businesses.  Stop by the Historic Schwartz Tavern and the Robert Thomas Carriage Museum and take a tour.  Visit the Blackstone Antiques and Crafts Mall which is also the home of the Blackstone Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center, and during the holidays, enjoy Bevell's Giant Train Display, also located in Blackstone's Historic District.
