Spots still open for Century Farms and Barns Bus Tour April 27
Seats are still available for Historic Salisbury Foundation’s second annual Century Farms and Barns Bus Tour through Mount Ulla on April 27.
The tour will last from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The foundation is inviting people to spend a day in the country, visiting notable properties and hearing family histories that shaped the agricultural landscape of western Rowan County.
“Last year’s tour in the southwest part of the county was a sold-out success with beautiful spring weather, and we hope for the same luck again this year,” said Leah Campion, the foundation’s events coordinator.
The tour will depart from West End Plaza. Stops include an original land-grant farm dating to 1758 that is still owned by the original family; a cut flower farm; and the original Back Creek Presbyterian Church Manse, circa 1862.
The tour also will go past many barn quilts mounted on barns and other buildings. A barn quilt painting workshop at Bear Poplar Place, formerly West Rowan Farm, Home and Garden, will be a highlight of the tour.
The tour will be held rain or shine.
Lunch will be served by the women of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church. Charter bus transportation is provided by Crossroads Tours of Cleveland.
The Rowan County Farm Bureau is the main sponsor for the tour. Tickets are $35 per person and available through the website at https://historicsalisbury.org/tours/century-farms-and-barns-bus-tour or by calling 704-636-0103.
