There is a room under the new addition of 1940 that was sealed off with concrete sometime after 1969. I’ve told folks it is the “Secret Room” – No one has been in there for years, not even me. Well ….. I was in there, accidentally. There is a hole where the wheat was shoveled into. This started the flour making process. The hole was covered by a trap door. We were moving some stuff and I told Karen “Be careful those old boards are rotten.” A few minutes I stepped on them and fell through. Sore ribs, a banged up elbow and new oak boards covering the hole. I only saw a small portion cause I hurt too much to look around.
