Circa 1916 Propagation Shelters at Whitesbog

Whitesbog LOST!
Once Elizabeth C. White and Frederick V. Coville selected the best bushes from the thousands grown in the Triangle Field they had to be propagated so a uniform crop of blueberries could be produced. The cloned bushes were grown at Whitesbog as well as sold through the J.J. White Conservation Nursery to growers that would establish fields of domesticated blueberries across America.
