Mother goose House

The Mother Goose Building in Hazard is a monument to the imagination and creative genius of George Stacy. Stacy started working on the house in 1935 using a goose skeleton to build the home to scale. The house was completed in 1940 and contains rocks from many US states and Canada. To this day the Goose continues to attract attention worldwide. It’s been featured in the New York Times, on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and on Home and Garden Television’s “Extreme Homes.”   

The Mother Goose Inn is temporarily CLOSED while under reconstruction, due to her head and neck moving off the foundation.  The beloved and iconic structure will be back in operation ASAP.  The Mother Goose is a unique part of our local history.

Peace Garden

North Main St., Hazard, KY 41701

During the fall of 2008 two Girl Scouts, Tyra Lamb and Lauren Little, of Girl Scout Troop 316, attended the Pathfinder's board meeting in order to suggest a collaboration to develop a peace garden next to Main Street in downtown Hazard near the North Fork of the Kentucky River. The Pathfinders believed that such a garden would be ideally suited to serve as the central point of interest along the walking and biking path that would be built along the river. Learn more...
