Here’s some of the more strange things we’ve uncovered so far in the demolition process.
- Loose change. It makes sense that we’ll find some random coins under molding or floor boards. We’ve probably netted about 45 cents all told. The oddest coin we’ve found so far was a quarter jammed into the space between the kitchen counter top and the counter backing. It’s almost as if it was purposefully stuck there as a spacer. It didn’t come out until the counter was torn out.
- Pages of old poetry. We’ve found bits of old newpaper and whatnot in various places in the walls, but the oddest thing we pulled out was several sheets of rolled up papers with printed poetry on them. I quickly warned Emily away from reading tattered text she finds inside of the walls.
- Bling bling! Yanking apart one of the floors,I found this diamond earring. I have no idea if it’s real. Em thinks it might be. Someday we’ll find out.
- A+ work. This wasn’t a real surprise since it was on the wall when we first toured the house, but pasted up in one of the bedrooms were several sheets of lined paper with a little kid’s drawings on them. I think with the right lighting and proper music, it could be a nice haunted house motif. In the light of day though, it’s kind of sweet.
