Restoration and revitalization of Blackstone has seen awnings and period lampposts appear along tree-lined streets reminiscent of the Victorian Era during which Blackstone founded its beginnings.
The restoration, preservation, and revitalization of Blackstone is a continuing priority of local citizens, businesses, industries, Downtown Blackstone Inc., and municipal government. Blackstone has recently been designated a Virginia Main Street Community. Historical architecturally significant homes and buildings are being refurbished to their original charm. These lovely old structures (over 400 of them ) reflect the warm invitation of Blackstone's people who share their pride in Blackstone.
Our community enjoys a culture that includes traditions of the rural south and has been enriched by the influx of families from around the world. Many returned families have located here, as well as those who lived in other parts of the country before discovering Blackstone. They all brought with them customs and traditions which make life here more interesting.
Recreational opportunities include everything from youth sports programs to golf, swimming, tennis, bowling excellent hunting and fishing, boating and hiking, heritage trails, or just picnicking in Seay Park and enjoying the surroundings. The Town of Blackstone continues to show growth and progress today.
