The Mother Goose House

Hazard, KY. George Stacy began building this monumental edifice in 1935, and finished in 1940. It was originally built strictly as a house, and eventually became a grocery store. No one is really certain why Mr.Stacy chose to do this. His family said he just woke up one day and announced he was going to do it.

The Goose is currently used as living quarters, but once housed a grocery store and restaurant. Years ago the Goose's eyes used to light up, but alas, they no longer do.
