Cranberry Cultivation Commemorative Plaque at Josiah Dennis Manse Grounds, Nobscusset Road & Whig Street, Dennis. Cranberry cultivation had its beginning on Cape Cod when in 1816, Henry Hall, a Dennis village citizen, discovered that wild cranberry plants covered by winter's wind blown sand produced bigger and more plentiful berries. The practice of covering cranberry bogs with sand soon caught on. Early cranberry harvesting was by hand using scoops.
