If you call some people strange, they feel insulted. When I hear that word, I wear it like a badge of honor. In my opinion, that's what Henry's Rabbit Farm in Staunton, Illinois should do as it's just been called out for this type of "honor".

Thank the bloggers at Only In Your State for this infamous declaration. Their exact words were "Henry’s Rabbit Ranch In Illinois Just Might Be The Strangest Roadside Attraction Yet". Take that as a compliment, Henry's.

If you're not familiar with Henry's Rabbit Ranch or Staunton, Illinois, it's a part of the famous Route 66 to the northeast of St. Louis.

The official website for Henry's Rabbit Ranch is almost as endearing as the location itself. It's an old-school site you'd expect to see around 1997 declaring "Hare it Is" in the browser tab. Love it. They describe their own history of how the ranch started:

Henry's Rabbit Ranch is a labor of love. Rich took a trip to California on Old Route 66 in 1993 and noticed the lack of Route 66 visitor centers and souvenirs of the Mother Road. When he got back home to Staunton he decided to do something about that and built his visitor center. Times have changed and Route 66 is seeing a rebirth all along the highway, and Henry's Rabbit Ranch was at the forefront of this movement.

It's vintage Route 66 and it has a plethora of rabbits. How can you top that? Answer: you can't. Wear that "strangest attraction" label as a big trophy, Henry's. We wouldn't want you any other way.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
