Granby Barn Quilt Tour

Celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the Town of Granby

Join us for a leisurely self-guided vehicle tour of some old, and newer, barns in the Town of Granby, Massachusetts.  Each has a 4' x 4' plywood "quilt" mounted on the barn.  

Please download the attached map which includes a listing of each barn and quilt on the tour.  Follow the numbers on the map to choose your own route; but enjoy the designs, the color and the architecture of these special barns.  The tour is approximately 28 miles and takes approximately one hour to complete.  

Please remember to respect the privacy of our barn owners and view barns from the road.  We ask that you not trespass on private property. 

Please see the attached flyer for more information!
