Quilt Barn Tour

There’s no better way to tour the hills of Athens County than the self-guided driving Quilt Barn Tour. Your mission: to see over twenty historic barns boasting replicas of traditional quilt patches. Your reward? Spectacular views of the Appalachian hill country.

Pack a picnic and don’t forget your camera. Choose to follow the 45-mile Applique Loop, the 45-mile Stitch Loop, or the 55-mile Quilter's Loop.
