Special Women's History Program The Whitesbog Preservation Trust will present a special lecture, historical re-enactment of a 1934 lecture by Elizabeth Coleman White to the Philadelphia Society for the Promotion of Agriculture and tour highlighting the incredible life of Elizabeth Coleman White on Saturday, March 24th, at 1pm.

Elizabeth White may best be known for cultivating the first commercially viable blueberry crop in the world! For this accomplishment, she is often known as the Blueberry Queen.

Reservations are necessary. $ 5 per member. $7 per nonmember. Meet at the General Store. Join us as we celebrate the life of Elizabeth C. White in honor of Women’s History Month!
