Welcome to the trail

 

Welcome to summer in Ashtabula County!

Whether you are cruising The Strip (above) at Geneva-On-The-Lake or exploring our 19 covered bridges, you will find barn quilts on your way and once you get there. Our trail will have more than 90 barn quilts by mid-summer 2017. Download our map, pack a picnic, fill the tank and head out to the byways of our lovely county in search of these rural art works – the barn quilts of Ashtabula County, Ohio.

About the trail

The Ashtabula County Barn Quilt Trail wanders across Ohio’s largest county, taking in working farms, orchards, wineries, historical sites and private property owners proud of their county, businesses and homes.

For visitors,

this site provides a gallery of our barn quilts with driving directions, stories behind each quilt and the barn that hosts it. We also provide links to nearby attractions so you can enjoy our covered bridges, wineries and historical sites.

A map of our covered bridges, barn quilts and wineries is available for download (pdf format, Adobe Acrobat reader required).

For lodging, we recommend The Lodge and Conference Center at Geneva-on-the-Lake, a barn quilt trail partner.

For barn owners

interested in adding a barn quilt to their property, this site offers downloads that include our brochure, application to be on the trail and construction guidelines and standards.

Our trail

is Ashtabula County’s fastest growing tourism attraction. Launched in early 2014, it has already grown to more than five dozen barn quilts, including several on our covered bridges. We have been to accomplish this thanks to a group of very dedicated volunteers, property owners and the Civic Development Corporation of Ashtabula County. Please consider supporting our efforts through a financial donation, sponsoring a quilt or by being part of the trail!
