Ada Hinton – It's Better in Person

Ada Hinton

Fred and Ada Hinton purchased five acres in 2001 from the Guill family because it joined Ada’s family’s land. Ada’s family, the O. T. Evans’ family, has lived and farmed in this community for generations alongside the Guill and Ramsey families. Robert Ramsey has been instrumental in maintaining the beauty of the barn, originally a pack barn, on which the quilt is hung. He initially restored a tobacco basket and made a tobacco leaf cut-out to hang on the barn. This was the inspiration for the quilt.
