What’s the economic impact? Wardsville’s stories
Wardsville, Ontario, installed a local barn quilt trail featuring 30 blocks. Six months later, this is what the locals are saying:
“Ever since the barn quilts came to town we have noticed an increase in the amount of people coming through and stopping in at the cafe. People ask about the quilts and often stop for coffee and lunch during their visit”.
Dave Wilson, Dave’s Cafe, Wardsville
“Tourists often drop into the library where we provide them with maps and information about Wardsville’s Barn Quilt Trail”. Your Wardsville has done an excellent job with this project.”
Jen De Bruyne, Library Supervisor – Wardsville Library
“People often ask about the beautiful painted patterns they see as they are driving through the area, sometines I find myself engaged in conversation with a passing motorist as I explain the significance of the Barn Quilts”.
Barbara Urbach, Crocodile Productions
“We are definitely in a unique part of the county. It is set apart by the presence of the beautiful patterns and colours you see on many of the buildings around town.”
Gary Van Osch, Wardsville Resident
