The town of Rabbit Hash was originally Carlton, but mail kept getting mixed up with neighboring Carrollton and a name change was needed.

Folklore says in the mid-1800s, multitudes of flood-fleeing rabbits descended upon the area, compelling locals to work them into more recipes. An especially tasty stew was dubbed “Rabbit Hash” and the name stuck. Word of the culinary creation spread, and Ohio River steamboats would dock near the town just to have some.

Another flood destroyed much of the town in 1937. The Rabbit Hash General store, however, was anchored to the ground with iron rods and remains standing today.
