Now about that name…

Over a century ago, rabbits were the prized cash crop of Chatham County. Folks in the area had their claim to fame. Many decades later, we live in a little mill house in historic Bynum, North Carolina, just on the banks of the Haw River. Our house was once the home of a mill working family. They played music and the husband was a member of the mill sponsored stringband, The Chatham Rabbits. You can read more about the original band and Bynum here.

We aim to pay respect to the original Chatham Rabbits.

 
Nothing that falls a victim to the hunter’s gun throughout the entire confines of North Carolina can compare with the Chatham rabbit.
