New Quilt Barn in Adams County

Young’s Farm on Beasley Fork Road is new location of the Windmill Quilt Square.

The Windmill Quilt, one of the original 20 quilts on Adams County’s “Clothesline of Quilts”, driving tour has been replaced and can now be seen at 1510 Beasley Fork Road, approximately one mile east from its original location. The original quilt barn, once located at 46 Beasley Fork Road near the intersection of SR 247, is no longer standing.
The barn is on the property owned by the Youngs. The Young family farm is one of the oldest in Adams County and has remained in the family since 1804. It is one of the few officially recognized Bicentennial Farms in Adams County. Ed Young said his father built the barn in 1933 from timber cut from the property.
The Windmill Quilt was painted by Neil Miller. The quilt square was attached to the barn by Allen Miller Construction.
One of the goals of the Adams County Travel and Visitors Bureau is to have all the original quilt squares back up on barns to once again complete the driving tour of Adams County’s Quilt Barns.
