Re: Seeking Info on OMIs bottle dump
Posted by Kurt W. Henneberg on 3/31/2013, 1:26 pm, in reply to "Seeking Info"
I am a lifelong resident of College Hill and interested w it's history. I was born in 1964, well after OMIs closing, yet attended Aiken HS in the early 80s. That's when my fascination with the grounds of OMI, Farmers College and The Cary Inst began. Today, I walked the woods behind what is now a community center, where the aforetime schools stood. I came across a coke/bottle dump that has artifacts dating from the 1930s, possibly turn of the century. Do you or any alumni you know, remember this site? If facing the once schools from Belmont Ave., the trash pit is on left in a fairly steep ravine. Any help is appreciated. Please also know, if any significant artifacts are found, I would love to give to any OMI alumni. If not, The College Hill Historical Society. Thanks
