Geocache Description:


The Green County Barn Quilts project started in 2008, and by the end of 2010 the 100th barn quilt was installed. Barn quilts are painted wooden squares (designed like one block of a real quilt pattern), generally 8 x 8 feet in size. Some are located on "working" barns, and others are displayed on "retired" barns. It's not as challenging as geocaching, but hunting for the barn quilt locations is a true adventure in experiencing the roads less traveled of the Green County countryside.

The Wald family dairy farm was purchased in 1916 from Isaac Williams by David Wald's grandfather, Karl Wald. David's parents then purchased it in 1959 upon the settlement of his grandmother's estate. Currently, David and Marcia Wald farm & milk their dairy herd on the family farm, Rocky Rolling Acres, which they purchased in 1979. At one time, this was a side barn, but it was converted to a center driveway in the early 1930's. The quilt pattern is "Dove at My Door."
