No barn quilt for Minhas
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Barn quilts are known to adorn many a structure in these parts, but hanging them within the boundaries of the city's downtown historic district remains a no-no. But could there soon be an exception to the rule? Minhas Brewery asked Monroe's Historic Preservation Commission on Tuesday if it could hang an 8-foot by 8-foot multicolored barn quilt outside its 13th Street gift shop and tour center, but commission members denied the request, noting the location lies just barely within the district, where outside quilts are not allowed.
