Quilt Trail to be Completed in the New Year!

Quilt Trail to be Completed in the New Year

“Stitching the Stories of Freedom: A Byway Quilt Trail Honoring the Underground Railroad” is a public art project developed by the Caroline County Arts Council and the Caroline County Tourism Office with support from the Maryland State Arts Council. Sixteen quilt block replicas are being installed at significant sites along the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway in Caroline County.


“Through this partnership, we have been able to honor the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman and tell the story of the Underground Railroad through public art,” says Marina Dowdall, Executive Director of the Caroline County Council of Arts.


Blocks include Chips and Whetstones at the Linchester Mill, Underground Railroad at the Leverton House, Tobacco Leaf at the Village of Choptank, Log Cabin at the Webb Cabin, North Star at the Williston Grist Mill, Whig’s Defeat at the Williston Community Church, Hole in the Barn Door at the 4H Park, Children of Israel at the Tuckahoe Meeting House, Sailboat at the Choptank River Heritage Center, Cotton Boll at the Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore, Garden Maze at the Foundry, Wagon Wheels at the Greensboro Riverfront Park, Maple Leaf at the Tuckahoe State Park, and Pine Tree and Wild Goose Chase at Adkins Arboretum.  A companion trail-guide will be available in the new year with quilt block locations, stories, and parking information for each site. Details about the project can be found online at


This project has been made possible through the contributions of numerous volunteers, the Maryland State Arts Council, and by private sponsors.
