Drive yourself through Buchanan County

The Barn Quilts of Buchanan County is a newly established non-profit organization promoting tourism throughout the county.  The ‘quilt’ is a painted 8×8 ft. wooden block that is attached to the barn (or outbuildings).  The committee is now soliciting those living in Buchanan Co. who would like to have their barn, or out buildings, included in this program.  The ‘quilt barn trail’ will be a patchwork path through Buchanan County.  It will be a ‘drive it yourself’ tour. Several sites, including Heartland Acres Agribition Center in Independence, and the Feed Mill in Lamont have already been displaying theirs since the fall of 2006.  For further information contact Buchanan County Extension Office, 319-334-7161.
