The Mystery of the Old Well

History has come alive in more than one-way at Florida A&M University this week.

Construction crews discovered a treasure from the past while working on the expansion of the black archives building.

University officials say a backhoe scraped into what is thought to be a well from the mid 1800.

Construction workers believe it is more likely a cistern, which is an underground water tank, which crews say is still a very rare discovery.

Either way, Gainous has requested to make the historical find a part of the new archives building.
