Das Dutchman Essenhaus is pleased to be a host-site for the Annual Quilt Gardens Along the Heritage Trail Tour from Memorial Day – Mid September! This colorful patchwork of quilt inspired gardens and quilt-themed murals is linked by the roads that form the Heritage Trail. Every quilt garden and quilt mural has its own intricate pattern, many are original designs and each has its own unique story. View 18 gigantic quilt gardens, 21 hand-painted super-sized quilt murals and experience what it is like to view more than a million vibrant blooms!
