How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
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 property was purchased by the Plums in 2005. The barn was built in 1893. The wood and stone structure was originally used for hay storage and is now a workshop. The original owners, the Turner family, were of Irish descent. Giles Turner was a successful farmer and cattle trader. He and his wife Mariah gave their three daughters a very good education. The Turner sisters never married, and lived in the house for 60 years. One sister was the local piano teacher, and another was a respected scientist and aviator. This Barn Quilt is called Crossed Canoes.
