In Rockton, barn quilts aren't just for barns

Written by

ROCKTON -- Barn quilts aren’t just for barns anymore. If you don’t believe it, visit downtown Rockton.

The first barn quilt in the country was installed on an Ohio barn in 2001, and the colorful designs have swept through the Midwest ever since.

They are popular in the Stateline area, and the trend sees no sign of slowing down.

The Rockton Township Historical Society has a new twist on the trend, and since 2011 has installed barn quilts at several downtown businesses.

Written by

BELOIT -- You’ve uncovered a tomb in an ancient Egyptian pyramid, and in the midst of exploring it, you suddenly find yourself trapped. You have 60 minutes to escape, and as the clock ticks down and the hieroglyphic-covered walls seem to close in, you search for clues in the tomb that will point to a way out.
