There’s A Barn Quilt Trail In Minnesota And It’s Everything You’ve Ever Dreamed Of

Some people might think Caledonia is just a wide place in the road, but this town in southeastern Minnesota is known for two things. First, it’s the Wild Turkey Capital of Minnesota. Second – and most importantly – it was named “The Heart of Quilt Country” by the Minnesota State Legislature in 2008. Why? Because of the sprawling barn quilt trail criss-crossing through the town and surrounding area.

The Caledonia barn quilt trail is a great way to see the far-flung roads and towns of our great state – and to appreciate the agricultural and creative roots that run through all its people. Go here to find a brochure for the trail. And make sure you print directions for the paved and unpaved driving loops.
