HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A curious cache of vintage broken glass was recently discovered in Hattiesburg.

Downtown Hattiesburg resident Greg Prine came across the vein of what appears to be thousands broken Coca-Cola bottles near a drainage ditch that leads to Gordon's creek.

The style of the bottles that were found were believed to be produced about a hundred years ago.

The trail of glass visibly ends at the edge of a parking lot, but Prine believes that it continues beneath the lot itself.

The bottle remnants are from past Mississippi area Coca-Cola bottlers such as Hattiesburg, Columbia, Laurel and Picayune.

This was something that was covered up that was supposed to be never discovered again, so yeah we are looking at the history of Hattiesburg,” Prine said.

A local stained glass artist Dee Tatum sent a helper over with some boxes to collect some of the larger pieces of glass for use in a future project.
