Graves County Adds 17 Barns to Quilt Trail
By The Associated Press
MAYFIELD - Officials in Mayfield and Graves County are updating the locations of barns that are painted with colorful quilt designs in an effort to boost tourism.

Tourism Commission Director Cynthia Elder told The Mayfield Messenger that the organization has worked with the Graves County Extension Homemakers and the Art Guild to find the decorated barns and add them to the community's quilt trail. She said the initiative has mapped 35 barns since the summer, up from 18 on a previous list.

Because of the popularity of the trail, Elder said officials are now trying to keep the map of barn quilt locations updated.

According to the Kentucky Arts Council, at least 30 counties across Kentucky offer similar quilt trails.
