Whitesbog Historic Village is part of Brendan T. Byrne State Forest and a historic village and farm dating from 1857. The Village is managed by a non-profit and all program proceeds go to the upkeep and programs for the community. The village was the location for a Horror Film and the Pine Barrens are home to many a legend about the Jersey Devil, and easy to get lost in the deep woods and unmarked roads and trails.

Liability Waivers will be available at the General Store for participants to sign before heading out on the tour.

This is a family-friendly event to raise funds for the nonprofit's work in preserving the historic village, all of the helpers are volunteers, so please exercise good judgement, supervise children carefully, especially around the campfire and be courteous to others. Take your time on the driveway, the road is narrow, has small one-car bridges bordered by ditches and cranberry bogs.
