The Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail welcomes you to take a drive across Ottawa County and celebrate the art of quilting as well as the history of barns. The concept of a Barn Quilt Trail began in Southeast Ohio in 2001, and the idea has quickly spread throughout Ohio and across the country. Each Barn Quilt Trail is unique, although they all attract quilters, barn enthusiasts, artists, historians, agrarians, and other visitors to explore the unique combination of art and local barns/buildings. We hope you will discover the beauty of our county, gain insight into our agricultural roots, and uncover the many businesses and attractions Ottawa County has to offer. While exploring our Barn Quilt Trail, look for the identification sign on each barn quilt that is a part of our trail. You are welcome to take a photo of the quilts, but we ask visitors to please respect the rights of the property owners who so generously made their buildings available for this project.
The Ottawa County Barn Quilt Trail was a collaborative project of the Ottawa County 4-H Program and the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council.
