“Quite Bonkers!”

Henry's Rabbit Ranch
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Staunton
Attraction details
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Although the title I have allocated is 'Quite Bonkers' I mean this in the nicest possible way! We stumbled upon Henry's quite by accident and even did a U turn to go back and visit; we were not disappointed. I hope Henry doesn't mind me saying that he is a somewhat passionate eccentric, the world needs more passion and eccentricity to add spice and colour to our existence. Henry cares for the rabbits he has rescued and we are fully supportive of the mission he is on, so many rabbits are adopted and then abused with neglect. Please stop and visit and donate to his wonderful cause.

We made a trip to this place at the outset of our Route 66 (which soon became east to west coast) trip. The place looks deserted with a lot of ‘junk’ outside and some rabbit hutches.

The ‘shed’ had an open sign so I tried the door and was warmly greeted by Henry the owner.
The shed is full of Route 66 typical modern souvenirs and some memorabilia and a couple more rabbits.

Henry was a really nice guy obviously mad about Route 66 and his rabbits – not sure which he prefers. He mentioned a couple of ‘must stay’ motels for our Route 66 trip which we had already booked (these are reviewed separately and to be honest, having stayed there I would not recommend as ‘must dos’). I get the feeling that there is a sort of cartel of individuals who recommend each other (some of these have never met up by the way).

Would I recommend? Possibly but bear in mind it is what it is – not a lot. It was a quirky place and Henry as said was a nice guy to talk to. At the start of a Route 66 trip, it was an ok stop and didn’t take us too far off a route. However, there were times later on in our trip when we did say – ‘why on earth did we go there?’

We stopped by Henry's Rabbit Ranch on our Route 66 journey. I have to say that Henry is one of the nicest people that we have ever met. We spent about an hour talking to him about various things and also his rabbits. If you are on Route 66, you have to make it a point to stop here. He has a row of Volkwagen Rabbits buried in the ground like at the Cadillac Ranch. He also has a few original Campbell 66 Express trailers from back in the day. What an interesting place to stop and spend some time.

Not sure what hours re or if it is still opened but you can take a look but looked stranded to me. No bunnies! :( there are old signs, gas pumps and memorabilia to see.
