Snails_Trail_08Josh & Jolene Custer own this big red barn and flashy barn quilt!

The Snail’s Trail (some call it Virginia Reel) barn quilt in bright yellow and orange was sponsored by Dolores and Hugh Andrew. They selected the image because it is the design on the barn of Donna Sue Groves, the founder of this nationwide project.

The barn was started in 1930 and completed in 1933. The lumber was obtained form the trees on the property. So far, four generations of the family have lived and worked the farm.

Location:
Bittinger Road (Route 495), south of Glendale Road and just north of O’Brien Road. The barn quilt is best seen traveling south.

Address:
4056 Bittinger Road
