The first square in the Calvert Barn Quilt Trail was designed by Karla Sisson. It was installed on September 8, 2017 and is hosted by the Cox family at Mulberry Hill Farm.
Mrs. Sisson's square was inspired by one of her favorite designs, 'Hole in the Barn Door,' and her childhood on a farm. For her friends, Wilfred (Fred) Cox, Jr., and his wife, Esther, she incorporated a tobacco leaf and colors of the Calvert County flag to reflect the Cox family's long history of farming.
Mulberry Hill has been farmed by five generations, starting with Ernest Cox, Wilfred Cox, Sr., Fred Cox, Jr., his son Mark Cox, Sr. and now Mark Cox, Jr. The barn hosting the square was constructed in several stages, beginning in the early 1900's, and was used as a tobacco barn. Since the tobacco buyout, the family has farmed produce and mums, and added wine grapes in 2013.
