OVERVIEW

Photo credit Bob Breese

About one quarter of the State of New Jersey is a largely uninhabited preserve called the Pinelands. The Pinelands are a result of geological transformations occurring over millenia, with humans beginning to shape the landscape 10,000 years ago.

European settlement brought towns and industries to the Pines, and began to change the landscape in ways previously unseen. The ghostly remains of industrial villages like Martha, where an iron furnace operated in the early 1800s, and Harrisville, where a paper mill flourished in the late 1800s, can still be seen. Company towns like Double Trouble Village, a cranberry farm and packing plant, and our venue Whitesbog Village, where Elizabeth White domesticated the blueberry, are today well-preserved examples of a bygone way of life in the Pines.

Today, large-scale cranberry and blueberry farming continue to provide an economic foundation for the region, making New Jersey the second-largest producer of blueberries in the country.


Whitesbog Historic Village

Browns Mills
Start/finish venue

Our venue Whitesbog Historic Village is a preserved early 20th-century company town and agricultural community. In the early 1900s, Whitesbog was the largest cranberry farm in New Jersey, and its founder, Joseph J. White, was a nationally recognized leader in the cranberry industry. Aside from its immense success with cranberries, Whitesbog is also where the highbush blueberry was first successfully cultivated.

Today, Whitesbog is part of Brendan T. Byrne State Forest and is listed on both the National and State Registers of Historic Sites. Whitesbog includes the village and the surrounding 3,000 acres of cranberry bogs, blueberry fields, reservoirs, sugar sand roads, and Pine Barrens forests.
