The Blair Plain conservation area is a compact cluster of two-and three- storey shophouses and terrace houses of various architectural styles. Apart from some commercial uses along Kampong Road and Neil Road, the area is largely a quiet residential neighbourhood, which hugs the narrow inner streets of Blair Road, Spottiswoode Park Road and Everton Road. The area was gazetted on 25 October 1991 for conservation.
The Blair Plain conservation area is named after the larger area which was the low-lying plain that stretched from Kampong Bahru Road to the sea.
The area was first substantially built up before the end of nineteenth century when detached bungalows were redeveloped and the land subdivided into urban residential terraces. An 1881 map shows the existence of Kampong Bahru Road, Spottiswoode Park Road and Everton Road with terraced buildings. They were likely to be of the ‘Early Shophouse’ style. Some of them still exist today. One notable example is 66 Spottiswoode Park Road which retains its painted fresco façade.
From the 1900s onwards, further urbanisation took place. Blair Road was laid out in 1900. It was named after John Blair, a senior officer with the Tanjong Pagar Dock Company in the 1880s. He owned land in the area and also had a substantial house nearer to the Port.
