Sandusky County Barn Mural Tour

Sandusky County is the home of the historic barn mural trail and each of our barns come with a story.  Hear those untold stories by our group tour step-on guide.  This 1.5 hour experience winds through rural Sandusky County, and your group will hear the meaning and inspiration behind each mural’s design.

These beautiful murals were made possible from the multiple corporate and private donors who have partnered with us to make it all possible. Our barn trail is growing each year as we secure barn locations and design a historical scene to paint on each barn. Most of the Sandusky County Barn Murals were designed by David Thornbury, a graphic designer/marketing director for the Visitors Bureau. Our first barn was painted just prior to 2003 to commemorate Ohio’s Bicentennial.  Our newest barn was secured in 2019 and was designed to commemorate Sandusky County’s Bicentennial. for more information about Sandusky County Barn Mural Tour

Massachusetts Portion of US Route 6

The Massachusetts Portion of US Route 6 is an iconic roadway spanning a breathtaking 117.5 miles in Massachusetts, stretching from Providence to Wareham alongside I-195 before crossing the Sagamore Bridge and traversing Cape Cod freeway style from Bourne all the way up to Orleans. From there it reverts back to a more traditional surface road until its terminus of Provincetown which interestingly still reflects US 6’s original coast-to-coast goal – Long Beach California!

Established as a National 501(c)(3) charitable organization, as a Public Charity the U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association works to promote economic development and cultural preservation for communities located along “The Grand Army of The Republic Highway.” Spanning 3,652 miles in total, this grand old highway is an integral part of Americana with many sites rich in history waiting to be discovered!  Online at
