A must see before leaving Perry County is the Mother Goose House. It was built in 1940 by George Stacy. The house is in the shape of a goose complimented with egg shaped windows. The house has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show and The New York Times. At night you will see the goose blinking his eyes at ongoing traffic.

Hazard is located in the heart of the Appalachian Coalfields in Eastern Kentucky. It is found at the crossroads of Highways 15 and 80 and the Hal Rogers Parkway (formerly the Daniel Boone Parkway). The City of Hazard was founded in 1884 on land deeded to the town trustees by Elijah Combs and his wife, Sarah. Hazard is named to honor Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, a naval hero from War of 1812.
