RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!

RABBIT HASH FIRE

Some of you may have visited Rabbit Hash, as you passed through Kentucky. The Rabbit Hash General Store has been the heart of this community for over 180 years. I sadly report that the General Store burned, to the ground Saturday night. There currently is an effort under way to rebuild.

They’ve got a “GoFundMe” page up here — https://www.gofundme.com/fewqjkh8 — and they’ve already got pledges for close to $50K, which is 20% of the quarter-million they’re hoping to raisee to rebuild and restock the store with a bunch of new old antiques.  It’s certainly a worth-while cause; definitely moreso than the one by the woman who was trying to get people to give her money after she spent all hers trying to buy a winning Powerball ticket back in January.

How sad. I was hoping to ride that area and visit that national treasure on my next business trip to the Cincinnati area. Another piece of history lost.

A great collection of photographs that catches much of the character of Rabbit Hash. The community insists they will re-build the General Store!!!!
