The Carroll County Barn Quilt Trail is a program that pays homage to Carroll’s agrarian history by installing 8-foot square quilt blocks on scenic barns throughout the county. The barn quilt tradition actually dates back many years when farmers used to paint Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs and other folk art designs on their barns. The first 12 quilt blocks in this project were chosen and painted by volunteers associated with the Carroll County Arts Council. The Carroll County Office of Tourism and the county’s agriculture development specialist worked with local farmers to place the quilts. The next 15 quilt blocks were chosen by the farm families themselves and printed by a local printing company. In many cases, these families created their own design or adapted an existing pattern so that each block is significant to their specific farming operation.

 

Lunch will be at the infamous Antrim 1844 in Taneytown.  Originally built in 1844, this 24-acre plantation was transformed into an inn and restaurant and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

After lunch, a stop will be made at Baugher's Restaurant that features country cooking and fresh baked goods for purchase.  Baugher's Fruit Market is located right next door for the freshest produce.
