The company store served Whitesbog’s residents and workers from 1899 until the late 1960s. In 1924, in order to accommodate need for more space as well as a post office, Whitesbog moved the building around the corner, next to the water tower and pump house, and built the larger store that you see today.

 

 

In November 1923, when blueberry correspondence and advertisement created sufficient mail volume for a third class office, the post office opened; it continued to function until January 1957.

 

 

The Whitesbog Preservation Trust has since refurbished the store, and it is currently open on the weekends as a general store, selling foods and trinkets that reflect Whitesbog cranberry culture.
