Default Rabbit Hash General Store Burns.

Saturday, 13 February 2016
Rabbit Hash, Kentucky

The Rabbit Hash General Store was a total loss after fire of unknown origin swept through the historic frame building that has been alongside the Ohio River since 1831. No injuries were reported except for many broken hearts just hours before Valentine's Day. The DELTA QUEEN and the BELLE of CINCINNATI were but two riverboats that landed at Rabbit Hash so that passengers could visit the rustic structure that surely saw many steamboats come and go over a course of some 185 years on the banks of the Ohio River.

As the fires are still smoldering at this writing, little is know about how the fire started or of the future of the General Store and whether, or not, it will be rebuilt.
