5. Armed to the Teeth
So, a guy bought a house on the cheap after the previous owner passed away, leaving behind most of his things and junk. The basement, in particular, was piled high with random things, so the new owner took it upon himself to begin the process of cleaning up and getting rid of some of the things that weren’t his. That’s when he discovered a piece of plywood stuck into one of the walls beside the stairs, and after some prying, he got it free, and what he found just about blew his mind. A bunch of gun cases (with guns inside), a large, metal safe, military ammo crates, and a big, metal, grey container. There were thousands of rounds of ammunition down there, as well as countless guns, a ton of pennies for some odd reason, bulletproof vests, and even a hand grenade! The grenade was no longer active, but still! Imagine finding all of that in your new basement! Would you keep it, turn it in, or sell it off?
4. Precious Cargo
In Hamtramck, Michigan, a man named Ricardo stumbled across a secret room on the top floor of his house while renovating and removing a wall. The wall had actually been hiding a secret room for quite some time, and he knew this because the home had been in his family for decades. He had lived there for years himself and never knew about the room, so finding it was sort of mind-blowing. Inside, he discovered two old, dusty trunks, trunks that contained some very interesting things. The trunks themselves were marked with a name, Daniel Kozak, and within, there were documents of all kinds! Letters, photos, and many other mementos were tucked safely inside, all featuring a family that Ricardo and his wife didn’t know. The story was picked up by a local news station and broadcast far and wide, eventually making its way to South Carolina, where it caught the attention of a woman who says they are mementos from her family and that the house was built by her grandfather, the stepson of Daniel Kozak. She was reunited with the items, and all was well.
3. Singer Castle
Okay, so these rooms weren’t really found, but built, by Frederick Bourne, the President of Singer Sewing Machine Company, in 1896. So not only does this place have a hidden room, but it has lots and lots of them, and that’s just the beginning! This place wasn’t always called Singer Castle; in fact, it was called Dark Island Castle for a long time and was just recently renamed. You can find this place on Dark Island near Chippewa Bay in New York, in the Thousand Islands region. It may seem like some ordinary castle at first glance, but there are actually secret passageways hidden throughout that can be accessed via a few locations, one of which used to be in the library, where you would have had to pull the right book to open it up. It also features paintings that you can look through like in the movies, sliding walls revealing hidden secrets, trapdoors and more. This place is legitimately like something you’d see in a mystery movie, and it sure would be an excellent and fun place to visit.
2. Yeah, No.
Move into a home they said, it will be fun, they said. Well, the Farla family partied pretty hard in their Telford house in Shropshire in England for Black Friday, and with the liquid courage coursing through their veins, they decided to take a peek past a metal grate they found in their home. The family had lived in the Victorian building for three whole years before deciding to investigate, which we don’t understand because how could one continue to live there without knowing what’s behind the creepy grate! Two of the family members pulled it out and then slipped down inside and what they found was a little frightening, to say the least. They found themselves inside an eerie cellar that looked very much like a chapel, given there was a huge, wooden cross in the middle of the room. But there was also a chest, and some newspapers that dated back to the 1930’s were found, as well as some brick seating, like one may find inside a church. The deeds for the house dated back some 230 years, and there was much speculation as to what the cellar had been used for; some say a pub, some say a catholic hideout, we just say a ghost trap. Actually, after leaving the cellar, they think they may have awoken some kind of ghost because of an orb in a picture they took of one of the brave explorer’s pregnant girlfriends not long after the drunken find.
