Rockingham County is mostly rural. Open spaces, rivers, quaint towns and agriculture (including wine!) make for fun family day trips.
The Rockingham County Quilt Trail is a tasty slice of country pie that will take you over the rambling hills and and bridges on a quest to find all 31 hand painted quilt squares (at this writing). You’ll find them affixed to barns, old and new, as well as a few locally owned businesses.
The journey is its own reward when you’re searching for quilt squares and our clients at Rockingham County Tourism know that getting people to motor through the countryside on an Americana safari is a great way to get people to the restaurants, canoe liveries and shops.
It’s a fun project for us, updating new squares every few months. And what a great way to celebrate a tradition in American arts and crafts.
