|Calvert Barn Quilt Trail Logo
The Arts Council of Calvert County is pleased to announce the
installation of the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail Logo square. Local artist
Janet Jones' design was chosen as the logo for the Trail at its
inception in 2016. She painted a barn with a quilt square using the
colors of the Maryland flag, and border colors of blue and green to
honor Calvert County's rich farming traditions and the abundance of the
Chesapeake Bay and Patuxent River.
The Southern Maryland tobacco
barn is a well-loved image in Calvert County. This barn is located
mid-county right alongside Barstow Road at the intersection with MD
Route 231. Surrounded by gently rolling fields as well as a pond, out
buildings and residences, the 30 foot by 80 foot tobacco barn was built
in 1955 by tobacco farmer T. Reid Hutchins. The present owner, Henry
Guyther, made purchase in 1973. His gracious offer to participate in the
Trail helps to continue the legacy of the iconic structure as well as
the history and arts of Calvert County.
