Whitesbog Preservation Trust

Whitesbog Village is an 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.

Open 365 Days A Year from Sunrise to Sunset for trail walking, horse-back riding, biking and driving. General Store is open Saturdays and Sundays 10 am - 4 pm February - December. Historic buildings and gardens are available to rent for weddings and parties, call 609-893-4646 or email whitesbogpreservationtrust@gmail.com.  Visit our website at www.whitesbog.org

 

Getting to us with your GPS can be a bit tricky!  If you put in the address 799 Lakehurst Rd., Browns Mills, NJ  08015, you will see the entry drive signs and the asphalt driveway into the village.  GPS often directs people into our village over sand roads and sometimes a trail that cars don't fit on!  Looking up Whitesbog Preservation Trust on your Google Maps in phone also works, or looking for mile marker 13 on Route 530.
