Blairsville is an unincorporated community in Robinson Township, Posey County, in the U.S. state of Indiana.


Blairsville was laid out in 1837 by Stephen Blair, and named for him. A post office was established at Blairsville in 1838, and remained in operation until 1902. With the construction of the railroad in 1880, business activity shifted to nearby Wadesville, and the town declined.

Blairsville contains the historic Blairsville Cemetery. A number of the internments are Civil War veterans.
