A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Quilt Barn

During an early Sunday morning drive I found myself on the back roads of Roane County, West Virginia, where I came across this old barn.

Left Hand, West Virginia


The yellow and red square on the front is a painted “quilt block”, signifying that this barn is on the quilt barn trail.  This trail concept originated in Ohio, and has since spread its way into Mason and Roane Counties in West Virginia. 

Although a bit of internet research indicates that there are at least 40 such quilt barns located in Roane County, I have been unable to find a map showing their locations.  I’m thinking this would be a most worthy photo project, assuming you could actually find them.
