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.”

Around Town

Bobby Davis Memorial Park & Museum


Mr. Lawrence O. Davis created a “living memorial” for his son, Bobby Davis, and the other young men from Perry County who lost their lives in World War II. The museum houses local history exhibits, library and archives containing photographs, historical documents, oral history tapes, artifact collections and a gift shop. (The Museum is temporarily closed at this time.) A peaceful waterfall, constructed by the City of Hazard, graces the plaza in front of the building. The county 4H council maintains an herb garden in the park, which along with benches and tables contributes to the park’s serene atmosphere. Admission is free.

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...
