Paulina is an unincorporated community located in Blairstown in Warren County, New Jersey, United States.

Paulina is located on the Paulins Kill, approximately 1 mi (1.6 km) east of Blairstown CDP.

History

In about 1768, William Armstrong constructed a grist mill there, which remained for more than a century. A second grist mill was constructed in Paulina in 1783 by Peter B. Shafer. That mill was later used as an axe-helve factory and saw mill.

By 1851, Paulina had a post office, and by 1882 the population was 110. In 1890, a grist mill was still located there.

Today

The Paulinskill Valley Trail, a 30-mile (48 km) long recreational rail trail following the former route of the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway, passes through Paulina.
