Total Solar Eclipse Barn Quilt Added - Explore the Trail | Barn Quilt Trail of LeRoy

Mar 14 - Oct 31, 2024

In celebration of the April 8th Total Solar Eclipse, a newly painted barn quilt has been added to the famous Barn Quilt Trail in Le Roy, New York. 

The design of the 8-foot-square barn quilt is a reproduction of the original barn quilt design that adorns the red barn in Genesee County's original children's book "Genny Sees The Eclipse".  The informative and fun story takes place at the fictional Genesee Farm on April 8, 2024, when Genny the Cow and her farm animal friends experience the solar eclipse.
