Community volunteers and resident hosts have built a barn quilt trail to celebrate the rich rural heritage of our city, Chattahoochee Hills, GA. We hope the Chatt Hills Barn Quilt Trail will inform -- and delight -- our friends, neighbors, and visitors.
Piecing together our heritage. One Barn Quilt at a Time
About the Chatt Hills Barn Quilt Trail Located just 30 minutes south of the world's busiest airport in Atlanta, Georgia, is a hidden gem of a small town called Chattahoochee Hills. Untouched by sprawl and mega development, this community made an intentional decision to preserve its rural heritage when it incorporated in 2007. Today, visitors come from all over metro Atlanta to enjoy a day in the country at our Serenbe Community, bicycle our 25-mile Scenic Byway -- the first in Georgia -- or explore the natural beauty of our parks and the Chattahoochee River. Most can't believe that there is such a beautiful country setting so close to Atlanta, and they wonder, "What's our story?" We invite you to tour our Chatt Hills Barn Quilt Trail and learn more about what makes our community so special. Each painted barn quilt is based on a traditional cloth quilt design, and each tells a story about our Chatt Hills heritage. To begin with, we introduce Kenny Smith and his family who have served the community for more than 100 years with their Smith Grocery Store. Learn more about Smith's Store in our Tour the Trail page.
Featured Barn Quilt of the Month. . . "Still Daffy"
Retirees Settle into their Hobby Farm Rick and Jan Davenport found greener pastures across from their son's farm in Chattahoochee Hills. They weren't quite ready to retire at that time, so they purchased the land and leased it to their son for his pastured farm animals. Over the next few years, Rick and Jan became friends with the neighbor, Miss Grace, who sold them her farmhouse in 2020 before it went up for sale. They established a hobby farm raising ducks and seeding their other hobbies. When selecting a pattern for their barn quilt, they requested a duck colored in the light browns of their Khaki Campbell ducks. They named it "Still Daffy" in honor of the cartoon character Daffy Duck, which seems captured in still-life. Located at 8120 Jones Ferry Rd (in Chatt Hills) [READ MORE]
