Scott’s Hole was a well-known Chapel Hill fishing/swimming place in the 1800s, but knowledge of it has all but disappeared today, and no physical description or exact location is known. According to Kemp Battle, the hole was named “for a man who drowned in it”. Its importance today is as a landmark near where several rare plants and a number of Herbarium samples were found. Come find out what we know so far and perhaps contribute to solving the mystery.
