The Whitesbog Preservation Trust Archives acquires and preserves artifacts in a variety of formats that document the history of Whitesbog Village, the cranberry and blueberry industries of New Jersey, and the individuals who contributed to that history.  The volunteer staff at the Archives is in the process of organizing, processing, and cataloging multiple collections. 

Currently, the collections include artifacts and documents related to cranberry and blueberry culture and development, cranberry and blueberry harvesting records , patents relating to cranberry and blueberry machinery, Whitesbog labor issues pertaining to migrant workers, ledgers and photographs,  publications and personal correspondence of Joseph J. White and Elizabeth C. White, and holly culture.  The Archives also contains records related to both the cranberry and blueberry cooperatives.

Research in the Whitesbog Preservation Trust Archives is available by appointment only.
