If you are in Hazard, KY, it is worth a drive by to the see the Mother Goose structure alongside Route 476. Local resident George Stacy demonstrated his rural genius by starting to build the creative building in 1935 and finished in 1940. He lived...More

There is nothing to see here but a structure shaped like a goose. Do not make the drive as it is not worth the effort.

I pretty much agree with a lot of the reviews. If you are looking for this to be your only out of state destination then you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a photo op, and are a freelance traveler looking for a...More

Don't bother. A total waste of time. Why would anybody do this and stranger still why would this be listed on trip adviser?

I have always loved this structure, Hazard is limited in what it has to offer in terms of attractions. This is a super neat place to stop and check out! If you like architecture, it is a must! You won't forget it!

This is why we travel on back roads instead of interstates. Where else would you see something like this. The man who lived there started building it in 1935 and finished it in 1940. The windows in the middle section are shaped like an egg...More
