You won’t believe the kinds of things that are discovered inside the walls of homes and other buildings. Some families have had terrible luck in this regard, while other people are thrilled about their surprise findings. After reading this article, you’ll be more likely to check for any hidden compartments the next time you move into a new home. You just never know what might be lurking behind the walls.
A Norman Rockwell Mystery
You might think that people only hide things of importance behind walls in the movies, but that isn’t the case. Donald Trachte Sr. made a copy of one of Norman Rockwell’s most famous paintings and hung it up on display. He hid the original version behind a wall, which his kids, luckily, discovered after his death.
His son, Donald Trachte Jr, says people are still full of questions. “What if the house burned down? What if it got bulldozed? What if we sold it with the Rockwell still in there? I don’t have answers,” he told Fox News.
