Brendan T. Byrne State Forest and Whitesbog Village [NJ]

Whitesbog was an active 19th- and 20th-century cranberry- and blueberry-producing community. This company town was founded in the 1870s by Joseph J. White. The commercial high-bush blueberry was developed here by Elizabeth White. Once a thriving town and one of the largest cranberry farms in the state, the now silent village is an example of the changes in agriculture in this state.

A second website for the site, operated by the Whitesbog Preservation Trust, can be found here.

The site offers tours, lectures, and occasional recreational and educational events.
