Barn Quilt Trail of LeRoy
Agricultural Fun, Arts, Outdoor
Self guided driving tours for viewing nearly 100 barn quilts in the Town of LeRoy. Barn quilts of LeRoy began as a bicentennial project for the Town of LeRoy, under the auspices of the LeRoy Historical Society. The first quilt, "JELL-O Jigglers" was painted in July 2011 as the annual Oatka Festival. Now, more than 100 quilts have been created and are on display throughout the area. These quilts have come to represent the pride shared by the people of LeRoy, a town with a rich heritage and a vision for the future that will guarantee quality of life for generations to come. Scheduled bus tours offered.
