Who Killed Tom Cobb?

This summer, we invite middle school students (rising 6th-8th grade) to join us at the T.R.R. Cobb House for a week long summer camp (July 10-15, 2017) investigating of the death of Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb. Campers will become detectives while learning the important research, communication, and technical skills needed to properly investigate a case. Camp is $50.00 per participant, with scholarships available for those in need. Space is limited. For more information, email aoatts@trrcobbhouse.org. 

Diggin Up the Past

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.
