'Outhouse archaeologists' dig up buried treasure in Afton
An Afton art studio was recently home to a unique type of “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.”
