Henry's Rabbit Ranch is Rich Henry's labor of love. About ten years ago Rich and Linda took a trip to California on Old Route 66 and noticed the lack of Route 66 visitor centers and souvenirs of the Mother Road. When he got back home to Staunton he decided to do something about that and built his visitor center. Times have changed and Route 66 is seeing a rebirth all along the highway, and Henry's Rabbit Ranch was at the forefront of this movement.

 

Henry's Rabbit Ranch, though new in terms of the Mother Road, maintains the best traditions of Route 66. This is what it's all about. Now about those rabbits, seems Rich and Linda's daughter got a pair of rabbits and didn't account for the resulting population explosion. She lived in a single room apartment and things were getting a little out of hand. Rich stepped in and helped out and the next thing you know there was a new attraction on Route 66 - a rabbit ranch.

 

Rich loves those rabbits and you know what? They love Rich too. When he walks by their pens they perk up and come out to meet him. Each rabbit has a name and a distinctive personality according to Rich. Rich has even trained some of the rabbits to do tricks for the visitors that stop in.
