The Efforts To Restore The Historic Rabbit Hash General Store

Many people considered the Rabbit Hash General Store as the heart of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, the tiny Ohio River town visited by thousands of people each year. A working store since 1831, the Rabbit Hash General Store was destroyed by fire last February.

Now efforts are underway to restore the structure, using materials and construction methods that will allow it to remain on the National Register of Historic Places.

Joining us to discuss restoration efforts are Founder and President of the Rabbit Hash Historical Society, Don Clare; and from the cultural resources management and historic preservation services company Gray &Pape, Senior Manager of Archeology, Mike Striker
