Steppingstone Preserves and interprets the rural heritage of Harford County. The founder of Steppingstone, J. Edmund Bull, wished us to represent the “last rural generation” – people who lived off the land and crafted their livelihoods by hand. Our barn quilt, the first in Harford County, was inspired by a piece in the museum collection and each flower represents the following: Breaking Bread and Community Ancestry of Faith and Hope Fire of Hearth and Forge Herbs – nature’s medicine cabinet Mechanics and Ingenuity Spinning and Weaving Native Tribes and the gift of Maize Love, Marriage and New Beginnings
