Digging Up the Past

bottle

The T.R.R. Cobb House and the Athens-based Southeastern Archaeological Services recently conducted an archaeological dig at the original site of the house at 194 Prince Avenue. Among the discoveries: a root cellar, a well, a pre-historic atlatl, a piece of a 19th century chamberpot, and a F.W. Fitch and Co. hair tonic bottle from the early 20th century. St. Joseph's Catholic School middle-schoolers assisted with the dig.
