Maps will be available at the information booth by the bandstand on the green and at all participating businesses and restaurants.
Applications were due on MAY 28, 2021. This is a public art project for New Milford students in grades 4 thru 12 to design a banner that will fly on New Milford Green that answers the question "What does your haert beat for?" See the web site www.heartbeatsnewmilford.org for more information.
The New Milford Barn Quilt Trail consists of 19 colorful quilt patterns hand-painted on large weather-resistant blocks and hung on antique and vintage barns and historical buildings around our town. It honors our rich agricultural history, the exciting resurgence of family farms in New Milford today and the American tradition of quilt-making. It is the first barn quilt trail established in Connecticut.
