About the Appalachian Quilt Trail

The AQT is a great way to experience the variety of rural life in one of the country's most scenic areas. Along the way, stop as often or as little as you like. It's easy to spot waypoints and trail stops along the trail: just look for the painted wooden squares. We invite you to take a trip back in time as you slow down and enjoy the scenic countryside of our region. For your pleasure we have displayed the artistry of the traditional quilt on a backdrop of historic and beautiful barns. Take your time, pack a lunch or better yet stop at a local country store or diner to enjoy some local flavors. You will find a variety of historic sites, produce stands, shops, galleries and other places to entertain you along the way.

Pattern

The mural on this farm was painted by students at nearby South Central Elementary School.

History

The third and fouth generation family members still work the land on Thompson farm growing a bounty of fruits and veggies through the seasons. The tulip pattern on this barn hints toward an earlier time when tulips cover the fields along the Nolichucky River.
