I remember blogging quite some time ago about my son Frank and his wife Amy's house. It is over one hundred years old and was the original "Bank of Waltonville", the tiny town that they live in. As a matter of fact , the town is so tiny that there is no longer a bank in the town. But back then there was a lot of mining going on and I suppose the town had a need for a bank.
I finally remembered when I was there this past weekend to get a photo of it. With their permission of coarse ! Not to worry, the locks have been disengaged so no one could accidentally get locked in there! The door is very hard to close as it is very heavy .
The walls that line the inside of the safe are made out of 10 inch thick concrete.
Unfortunately they have never found any money in there but they have found some very old receipts from long ago business owners.
The safe itself sits inside of a pantry or closet type room with a door so unless the door is open you can't see the safe.
They asked that I not post a picture of the inside as they use it for a tool/ closet/catch-all room. I understood. Just open one of my closet doors!
I think it would be very nice to have a safe place in my house. Don't you ?
