Double Trouble in New Jersey

By Linda Tancs

In Ocean County, N.J., you’ll find Double Trouble.  No, not the nefarious kind.  It’s a state park located on the eastern edge of the Pine Barrens –and with a name like that, you’d be correct in assuming that it isn’t exactly teeming with visitors.  All the better for you, though.  Enjoy the peace and serenity of fabulous walking trails dotted with cranberry bogs.  Embracing a historic village that typifies centuries-old company towns reliant on local industry, the woodland is emblematic of cranberry culture.  The Double Trouble Company had one of the largest cranberry operations in the state there (hence, the name).   The Double Trouble Historic District was placed on the State Register of Historic Places in 1977 and on the National Register in 1978.
