Many outdoor photo-ops including a replica old-time gas station, a nod to Cadillac Ranch in Texas, and a large saddled jackrabbit photo-op. They've been done elsewhere, but live bunnies hopping around is a unique touch.

Rich Henry.

Henry's Ra66it Ranch

Rich Henry greeted me with a bunny in his arms. I was his first visitor of the day and I took advantage of the time and we chatted for a long time. He is quite the interesting man. Lot's to see, and of course he has a story with each item. I liked his rabbit car collection and the half-buried collection. Ask to see his dust collection! Bless people like Rich and be thankful people like Rich like us roadside junkies.

Rabbit tombstones.

Rich Henry's collection of VW Rabbit vehicles has grown, and unfortunately the collection of dead and buried actual rabbits has grown as well. Lots more to see than one might expect.

Hare It Is.

Henry's Ra66it Ranch

The owner, Henry, told us a lot of stories of Route 66 trips and also offered a lot of tips! He introduced us to all his bunnies; he rescued them from local shelters. Henry let my 2 year old son pet the bunny. Don't forget to check out the big bunny at the back. You can also see a lot of bunny tombs there.

We can't wait to visit Henry again on our next Route 66 trip!

Fun little nostalgic stop! Can be done in 20 minutes. Good stretch and fun photo op! Henry has 11 rabbits as of Aug 2016. Ask Henry where to eat and he will tell you the best little restaurant on historic Route 66. Thank him for making a great suggestion and sharing a little history with you!
