Archiving Historic Documents from Whitesbog: A Pinelands Cultural Preservation Initiative

The purchase of archival supplies and the training of staff and volunteers in procedures for handling and storing photographs, documents, and artifacts that document the growth of the cranberry and blueberry industries in the historic village of Whitesbog.

The Pinelands Institute for Natural and Environmental Studies (PINES), a program of Burlington County College, in collaboration with the Whitesbog Preservation Trust, requests funding to purchase archival supplies and hire a consultant to conduct a training workshop on the long-term preservation of its historical collection of documents related to the agricultural and cultural history of the New Jersey Pinelands. These publicly-available manuscripts, ledgers, photographs, blueprints, and artifacts are an important humanities resource as they provide insight into what life was like for an agricultural community in a late 19th- and early 20th-century company town.
