Edgely Rabbit Hutch


Dates From: circa 1860
Original Location: Edgeley, Ontario
(Jane Street and Highway 7)

Built with a timber frame and board and batten finish, this structure was used by several farmers in the community to butcher livestock.

Because storing large quantities of meat was difficult in a time before refrigeration, farmers often worked together, sharing the meat from one animal at a time.
