Cranberry Farming in Wisconsin

Cranberry Farming in Wisconsin at the WHS. "...Wisconsin played a key role in making the humble cranberry an American icon. Cranberries have been grown commercially here for more than 150 years. As in New England, American Indians introduced the first settlers to the virtues of the tart red berry. This month's gallery of historic images from the Society's visual archives presents more than 130 pictures of cranberry growing, harvesting and advertising through the decades. So as you wait for your cranberry Jell-O to set this week, take a break and explore where it all started."
