Plan Your Trip

There's no better way to experience the culture and history of rural Northern Indiana than by hitting the road to travel through the gently rolling countryside. In the spring of 2009, this journey became even more inviting as colorful quilt-block murals started to adorn historic barns, family homesteads and public spaces.

Marshall County's trail is Indiana's first Barn Quilt Trail and celebrates the history of agriculture, time-honored tradition of quilting, the community's passion for art, community pride and Hoosier Hospitality.

Connecting the communities throughout Marshall County, the Barn Quilt Trail features a series of large murals painted in a variety of quilt patterns on barns, businesses and public spaces in downtown areas including popular Culver and Plymouth.

The art of quilt making has come full circle since the first women settlers brought it from Europe to America's shores. Quilts and quilting echo the social and economic history of families and communities; today, appearing in creative new formats, they contribute to the art of modern life, tell stories and – as with the Barn Quilt Trail – bring color and interest to an already beautiful landscape.
