One of the Barn Quilts on the trail.
Like colossal roadside canvases, barn quilts artistically combine two symbols of Texas heritage—barns and quilts. The colorful patterns, painted on or hung on hundreds of barns, houses or even sheds throughout the region, create the backdrop for a series of driving and walking tours perfect for an afternoon escape. Do you want to be a part of an East Texas driving tour that will connect art with the city, a scenic country drive or small-town visit?  The first set of maps will be printed November 1 and as more quilts are added additional maps will be printed.  Maps will be distributed to the Chamber of Commerce.   Please call 903.533.1771 for additional information.  Download form here.
