Barn Quilt Locations
707 East Herr Road, Urbana
Barn Owners: Andy and Corkey Detwiler
Quilt Square: "Family Traditions"
Sponsors: Detwiler Farms
Originally built in 2008, this steel barn replaces a 1930's era bank barn which could not be saved. The location of the current barn preserves the view of the Kingscreek Valley and cemetery where all of the Detwiler descendents since the Civil War are buried. The barn is now used as a machine shop.
Keeping traditions alive is very important to the Detwiler family, so the quilt square represents the main crop grown on the farm, corn, and the pattern, "Grandmother's Flower Garden", represents a quilt made by Corkey's great grandmother.
