Alcona Quilt Trail
The motto is “Stitching Together a Community” and is an ongoing project to use Art and History to Tell Our Story. The Alcona County Quilt Trail Project celebrates the historical, agricultural and cultural richness of Alcona County, Michigan.
The project involves constructing large painted, wooden quilt square replicas on the sides of barns and other traditional building in the area. This trail highlights both Alcona County's rich local history and the important role that arts and crafts play in the community. If you would like to do the driving trail stop by local businesses or visit the website.
The first quilt block was installed in 2008 and can be seen about 2 miles east of Harrisville on M-72. Over the next 2 years the group was able to install 28 squares throughout the county. We were able to install two squares in each of our townships which includes two in each of Harrisville and Lincoln. We encourage all visitors to do the quilt trail and discover our beautiful county.
