Barn Quilt Locations
7012 Stevenson Road, Mingo
Barn Owners: The Johnson Family
Quilt Square: "Maple Leaf"
Sponsors: Johnson's Maple Syrup
The farm has been in the family for 203 years. Their ancestors, beginning with Jacob Johnson, were early pioneers in this area. The wood barn displaying the quilt was built about 1950 and is a machine shed. The older barn on the farm was built in 1900, but was not situated suitable to display the quilt.
The family selected the "Maple Leaf" quilt pattern because of the family's maple syrup business. The family started making maple syrup before 1900.
