The legendary ‘Cat Hole’

Along Washtenaw Avenue toward the sharp bend into Huron Street is the site of a long-lost Ann Arbor landmark known to generations of Michigan students and staff as the Cat Hole. The origins of its name are varied and uncertain, but in U-M’s earlier years it was a popular place to throw things.
