This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


August 4, 1923
A. T. Morris of New London (Stanly County), North Carolina, left a letter in a wall of Old West while working on renovations. The letter states his wages for the job, his age, and offers a reward to whomever finds the document. On February 11, 1992, construction workers, who were remodeling Old West, found the document.
