Rabbit Hash

Rabbit Hash is strange. It’s old-timey but also extremely liberal. It’s small but filled with big personality. But one thing that Rabbit Hash is with no contradiction is laid back.

The whole town was, like, 6 buildings.

I’m not sure how I found this place. We were going to be in the Ohio/Indiana/Kentucky region and I needed something to fill out our itinerary. Some random Google searching brought me to Rabbit Hash. It’s an unincorporated community, which means it has no local government but is run by a larger one. But Rabbit Hash is tiny so it isn’t really on the larger government’s radar.

It’s a small area, only about 6 buildings, planted between houses. When we drove in, we saw a lot of people milling about and a lot of bikers. We drove past the town before we even started looking for a parking spot so we had to turn around.

We went to the Rabbit Hash General Store. It was packed with thrift store-type junk to buy in the back and more official-looking, touristy items to buy in the front. They had old-timey candy and pop but also vegan cookies. There were chairs set up near the cooler inside and a group of older men sat around, drinking pop and talking.

We got pop, cookies, and some candy. Outside there were picnic tables set up under a tent thing. We sat down and looked out over the river. A group of people were playing horseshoes next to the store and a dog was roaming around, running up to people for free pets.

Rabbit Hash has a dog for a mayor. Sadly we didn’t get to meet the mayor because he was at home that night. Instead we got to meet what I can only guess is the town idiot. This dog was ridiculous. He was running around all goofy and commandeered a pile of straw, getting filthy in the process.

Getting a drink. Not the mayor.

Whoever did the gardens around this place deserves some kind of medal. It was absolutely gorgeous.

Very quaint.

Really cool, retro buildings.

There was a kitty cat sleeping on the porch steps that led up to a bar. His fur was soft and his ears were clean. They take good care of their animals here.

His name was Tucker? Tyler? Not sure. He was cool anyway.

After we drank our pop, we looked around a bit. It didn’t take long because of how small the place was but it was filled with stuff. Funny signs and beautiful flowers. People hanging out, minding their own business. Rabbit Hash is chill.
