IllinoisMuseumOutdoor ActivitiesRoadside Attraction

Hare it is! Henry’s Rabbit Ranch in Staunton, Illinois is a Route 66 visitor center and souvenir shop with a particular pedigree.

The theme at this Route 66 roadside attraction is rabbits. There are often dozens of real rabbits hopping around, a line up of VW Rabbits buried nose first in the ground a la Cadillac Ranch, and there’s even a big fiberglass jackrabbit beckoning visitors to hop on for that perfect Route 66 Instagram moment.

Besides a proliferation of rabbits, you’ll find trucking memorabilia, Route 66 souvenirs, and a replica of a vintage filling station. Behind the shop and the giant fiberglass rabbit, you’ll also find a touching tribute to and headstones of all the pet rabbits who have crossed the rainbow bridge. A HARE IT IS sign out front is a fun play on the billboard for another fun Route 66 roadside attraction, Jack Rabbit Trading Post in Joseph City, Arizona.

Rich Henry opened this Route 66 attraction after taking his own road trip on the Mother Road. Disappointed by the lack of visitor centers on the route, he decided he’d open his own. But why rabbits? Well, that theme came easily. Too easily. When his daughter’s pair of rabbits started to multiply, there was only one solution: build a rabbit ranch big enough for the bunnies.
