Description: 
"A working general store since 1831, the Rabbit Hash General Store is the heart of historic Rabbit Hash, a quaint little Northern Kentucky river-town whose fortunes literally have risen and fallen with the waters of the Ohio River. The town's name, Rabbit Hash, is said to have originated during the flood of 1847 when the abundant local rabbit population was driven to higher ground and became a food staple in a special stew called "hash." The Rabbit Hash General Store was completely submerged during the 1937 flood that crested at an unheard of 79.9 feet. The Rabbit Hash General Store looks untouched by both time and river waters. Its large front porch with roof overhang is the town's social focal point. A large painted sign welcomes visitors to the store itself, which still sells groceries and other staple items for local residents."
