ARN QUILTS OF LEROY BEGAN AS A BICENTENNIAL
project for the Town on LeRoy, under the auspices of the
LeRoy Historical Society. The first quilt, “JELL-O Jigglers”
was painted in July 2011 at the annual Oatka Festival. The goal was
to have 24 quilts painted and erected in time for LeRoy’s Bicentennial
event on June 8, 2012. In less than 10 months over 70 barn quilts
were near completion. Most of the squares were purchased through
the LeRoy Historical Society and they helped raise money for the
Bicentennial event. The quilts have come to represent the pride shared
by the people of LeRoy, a town with a rich heritage and a vision for
the future that will guarantee quality of life for generations to come.
L Many of the quilts are on barns, but some residents have applied their creativity to the sides of sheds, garages and outbuildings.
There are also patterns inside local restaurants, Wolcott Street School
(painted by second grade students), the Village Green Nursing
Home and The Greens Senior Living Facility.
L The Barn Quilt
project will continue after 2012 and the Town of LeRoy welcomes you to
return again and again to explore more scenic barn quilts.
Each quilt has a story to tell and these stories can be found online at
www.leroybarnquilt.org.
ABOUT THE TRAILS
Four scenic driving tours are featured on the maps.
L
Each tour route is highlighted in a different color.
L
The name, address and size (in feet) of each quilt is listed
and the location of each quilt is plotted on the map.
L
Some locations have multiple quilts.
L
Some quilts face the opposite direction (as noted)
depending on the direction
of travel.
L
Quilts that are part of the
2012 LeRoy Bicentennial
Project are indicated by a
© symbol.
Enjoy the barn quilt tours all year round and come back next
year to discover new quilts.
Please remember to check for traffic as you slow down or stop
to view a quilt.

growth of the community, other commercial ventures added to
the viability of LeRoy. The massive deposits of limestone were
sources of architectural building material and limekilns provided
necessary lime for mortar. Eventually LeRoy became known for
agricultural implements, patent medicines, porcelain electrical
insulators, processed malt, salt, and of course Jell-O. LeRoy was
the home of Calvin Keeney, who developed the stringless snap
bean. The unique history of LeRoy has been interpreted through
the designs of many of the barn quilts.

The LeRoy Barn Quilt project was initiated in the summer of
2011 by Lynne Belluscio, Director of the LeRoy Historical
Society as a contribution to the Town of LeRoy for its 2012
Bicentennial. With the encouragement and financial support
of the Historical Society, the first barn quilt, “Jell-O Jigglers”
was painted during the annual Oatka Festival in July 2011.
The plan was to paint and install 20 to 30 barn quilts in the
next twelve months, culminating in the Town’s Bicentennial
celebration on June 8, 2012. The project was so popular, that
in less than a year, over 75 quilts were completed. By September 2012, the number of quilts exceeded 100. In October
2012, the LeRoy Historical Society received the prestigious
“Community Art Award” from the Genesee-Orleans Arts
Council for the LeRoy Bicentennial Barn Quilt Project. In
2013 the number of quilts exceed 100.
