Pennsylvania German Hex Signs

Examples of hand painted Pennsylvania German barn/hex signs. These signs were painted by one of the craftsmen participating in the Fall Fescht (festival), which is held each October on "the farm", located on the property of the Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center, Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The Center, a living museum, celebrates the rural Pennsylvania German (also known as Pennsylvania Dutch) life in southeastern Pennsylvania.
