Inscription.  Originally a horse barn owned and converted by the Klump family, Rabbit Run Theater opened in 1946. In its early years, Rabbit Run operated as a professional summer stock theater and many well-known actors such as Jessica Tandy, Hume Cronyn, Jim Backus, Dustin Hoffman, Charles Grodin, and Sandy Dennis graced its boards. Sadly, the theater closed in 1967 and remained dark until 1979 when a group of local theater lovers reopened the "barn" as a community theater. Rabbit Run Theater is one of only a few converted barn theaters still in operation today.
 
Erected 2003 by Ohio Bicentennial Commission, The Longaberger Company, Rabbit Run Community Arts Association, and The Ohio Historical Society. (Marker Number 22-43.)
