We at Fall Creek recognize the historical significance of Elizabeth Coleman White and her pioneering role in blueberry variety development and propagation in the early 1900's. Whitesbog was a 600-acre cranberry farm owned by her father which later became her home and the location of her very important early work in blueberries. Currently the Whitesbog Preservation Trust is working to elect Elizabeth Coleman White to the New Jersey Hall of Fame. Here is their summary:
