Forcht Bank To Help Rebuild Rabbit Hash General Store

BURLINGTON, KY – Forcht Bank has announced that they will be matching donations made to

the Rabbit Hash General Store at their location in Burlington to help efforts in rebuilding the

historical building. From now until April 30th, Forcht Bank will match donations made in person

at our Burlington Banking Center up to a total of $1,000. Since being decimated by a fire, the

Rabbit Hash General Store has raised over $57,000 to help assist rebuilding efforts.

Despite surviving the Great Depression, multiple floods, and several landslides throughout its

185 years of existence, the Rabbit Hash General Store burned down on February 14, 2016. As a

working general store since 1831, the store is the anchor of Rabbit Hash, a small river town in

Northern Kentucky. The Rabbit Hash General Store was on the National Register of Historic


“The Rabbit Hash General Store provides some historical significance for this area,” explains

Chip Regenbogen, Burlington Market President at Forcht Bank. “And as a community bank, we

feel compelled to help rebuild one of our community’s landmarks.”
