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 a little history of the trail, watch this:

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). Please note that Quilt No. 90 has been reassigned and is not at the Ashtabula Town Square mall but in Williamsfield Township.

For barn owners

who are 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 112 barn quilts, including three on covered bridges. We have accomplished 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!
