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.

This farm has been part of the Voegeli family's history since 1854. The farm was purchased by Jost Voegeli, a Swiss immgrant, in 1854. There was already a barn on the land when it was purchased, but that was leveled and the Ralph Brothers from Monticello helped rebuiled a new barn because the first one was inconvenient. The current barn was built in 1918. This barn has always been used as a dairy barn. The quilt pattern is "LaMoyne Star."
