Thumb Quilt Trail
The Port Austin Area historical Sociatey
worked with "Friends of the Thumb Octagon Barn"
to sponsor five barns in the
Port Austin area for the thumb quilt trail.
The Thumb Quilt Trail was established to promote
tourism, to promote the appreciation of barns,
to tell the story of a small agricultural community
and to promote the art, craft and legacy of quilt
making in the Thumb Region.
