Take a step back to Hancock County’s and Northwest Ohio agricultural roots with a scenic Barn Quilt tour. All of the county’s 17 townships have at least barn quilt on display, with a minimum of 86 quilt squares scattered throughout Hancock County.
A statewide movement in barn quilts sparked Barbara Gabriel of Arcadia to create one for her own property. After donating another one for the Hancock County Fairgrounds, Barbara soon found herself working with the Arts Partnership and county’s Convention & Visitor’s Bureau. Interest kept growing from there and Barbara soon found herself very busy producing barn quilts for many different people across Hancock County.
