Significance: Whitesbog Village and Cranberry Bog is an agricultural company town founded by J.J. White in the Pine Barrens region of central New Jersey. Whitesbog began as wild cranberry bogs converted to commercial production by James Fenwick in the 1850s. J.J. White married Mary Fenwick in 1869 and began managing these bogs after his father-in-law's death in 1882. Known for his 1870 manual Cranberry Culture and as a skilled machinist, J.J. White proceeded to expand and improve the family cranberry bogs over the next forty years. When incorporated under J.J. White Inc. in 1912, Whitesbog was the largest and most progressive cranberry farm in New Jersey. By the 1920s, Whitesbog included extensive cranberry bogs and irrigation systems, field of experimental blueberry bushes and greenhouses, two groupings of migrant worker housing (Rome and Florence), and a main village including worker housing, a general store, barrel-making factory, barrel warehouse, a massive cranberry sorting and packing plant, and other associated outbuildings and structures. ...
