This 2013 production run was done in a striking, dark navy blue background. The fringed coverlet measures 48 inches by 68 inches.

The HISTORIC LANDMARK COVERLET features twelve historic landmarks in the County, historical structures that are deeply ingrained in Douglas County’s early history and cultures. As the County map profile to the right depicts, these twelve landmarks are located throughout Douglas County.
