We found a small, secret walled-off room in our basement. This room has a dirt floor, and we found quite a few bones in a shallow pit. We were creeped out until we determined that they were various deer bones that a long-ago dog had buried there. The room had been sealed off for at least 50 years. Other evidence that we found leads us to believe that a former owner of our home stashed his booze down there during prohibition. The evidence was empty :).
I know of a few very old homes in my area that have a tiny hidden room incorporated into their design. Our town was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Our house is a Victorian built at the turn of the century, but the original owner had it custom built, and apparently wanted a secret room of his own.
The attic is unfinished; we haven’t poked around in there much. We’ve found a few dead bats up there, but that’s about it. Our house is not done yielding up its secrets, though. We’re in the process of restoring it. I hope we don’t find anything like that…:eek:!
