Holed up in history: Afton business participating in ‘outhouse digs’
An Afton art studio was recently home to an unusual treasure hunt.
On June 21 the Old School Art Studio played host to an “outhouse dig” by Hastings resident Jim Lewanski, who makes a hobby out of digging up old outhouse sites in search of relics and artifacts.
“Before the 1930s there wasn’t trash removal or trash pick-up,” said Kate Sullivan, owner of the Old School Art Studio. “Whatever they couldn’t burn, they threw down the outhouse hole.”
