A Patchwork Path through Athens County

There's no better way to tour the hills of Athens County than the Quilt Barn Tour. Your mission: to see over twenty historic quilt barns. Your reward: spectacular views of the Appalachian hill country.

While on the lookout for the next historic Quilt Barn, you'll discover winding creeks, fields of wildflowers, spectacular overlooks, and covered bridges. Pack a picnic and don't forget your camera. Choose between the 45-mile Appliqué Loop, the 45-mile Stitch Loop, or the 55-mile Quilter's Loop.
