  • History of Rabbit HashSurviving floods and fires...

    Little documented history of Rabbit Hash actually survives, primarily because devastating Ohio River floods in 1884, 1913 and 1937 ruined many records. There is still mud in the store's attic crawl space from the historic 1937 flood, and the only reason it is still here is that it's anchored securely to the ground by a series of iron rods.Read More

JUNE 2020 - Store is open every day from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM

The community of Rabbit Hash has struggled to social distance ourselves from one another and although we are managing, it's been a challenge to stay away from each other. Some locals found that creating a community garden is a fine way to be together at a safe distance while others are playing music but keeping a few guitar lengths between them.

There has been a continuous flow of motorcyclists, bicyclists, and other folks stretching their wings in Rabbit Hash for the past 2 1/2 months even though the general store was closed. But we have now opened our doors with limited hours which allows a little extra time for cleaning.

I am astounded that after almost 20 years in Rabbit Hash my love and longing for this place is still alive and well and as strong as it has ever been. I am still cautious about human contact but feel that if another wave of COVID-19 comes, we will have had this time to reconnect with one another and refuel our souls with smiles, laughter and positive energy. The biggest tragedy would be walking away from this pandemic with no new insights or lessons under our belt. I know I personally have a renewed appreciation for Rabbit Hash, its locals, and all of you that venture here to support us and to take a little love and peace of mind home with you.

I hope you are safe and well and look forward to seeing you this summer.
