The rural area of Boone County that is now known as Rabbit Hash was first settled around 1813, three years before its cross-river neighbor (Rising Sun) Indiana became a state. As steamboat travel and trade increased up and down the Ohio River, a ferry and general store were eventually opened on the banks of the Ohio River and a rivertown was born. Originally known as Carlton, for one of Boone County’s earliest settlers James Carlton, the town was asked by the postal service to change its name when increasing amounts of mail were getting mixed up with that of the nearby town of Carrollton. The name of Rabbit Hash came from a local man who proclaimed during the winter of 1847 that there should be plenty of rabbit hash to eat due to flooding forcing all lowland creatures to seek higher ground, creating an influx of rabbits in the area.
