Barn Quilt Trails

Culture, Character, Creativity & Charm

Reflecting the culture and character of the local area, Barn Quilts are painted on a single board and painted to look like quilt blocks. They are often hung on the exteriors of barns and other buildings, creating a trail for visitors to explore. Originating in Adams County Ohio, the age-old tradition of honoring and capturing local heritage, historical events, agricultural character, and beauty came to St. Lawrence County in 2014 with the first barn quilt trail in Hammond, New York. Currently, barn quilts hang in several towns with two barn quilt trails running through the county; Hammond's Barn Quilt Trail and Colton's Barn Quilt Trail.

Hammond's Barn Quilt Trail

Starting in 2014, the Hammond Barn Quilt Trail highlights over 50 barn quilts on the self-guided tour through Hammond New York. The trail hosts yearly workshops and events to show off their beautiful barn quilts and welcome visitors from around the country. Tying together the community, the Hammond Barn Quilt Trail runs near local wineries, restaurants, museums, marinas, and other attractions.

Colton's Barn Quilt Trail

As part of the collaborative project 'Art Around Town' between the town of Colton and the Colton-Pierrepont Central School Art Department, barn quilts started being displayed publicly and privately around Colton, New York. The Colton Barn Quilt Trail quickly exceeded the town's original goals and over 70 barn quilts have been installed since 2015, truly capturing the heritage and beauty of the local area within their prints for visitors to explore.
