People Share Stories of Discovering Passageways And Rooms That They Had No Idea Were There.


As a Jurassic Park fan and budding young buccaneer, this intrigued me. Did this door lead to some kind of lost world? Was it hiding a fabulous secret?

I spent three years trying to find out, but the door was always shut fast and locked with a big brass padlock. My schemes to invade, including digging under it from beneath the front porch, were failures.

Finally, not long before we moved, I found the door unlocked and ajar. Flush with success, I crept inside…the well house. A cramped, stuffy little room containing only the well pump, spider webs, and a smaller door to the space under the house.

The detail that had caught his attention was little more than a literal hole in the wall. It was about three feet square, bordered by some kind of moulding, and absolutely pitch black on the other side. The two of us stood and stared at the space, both feeling somewhat uncertain about what we had discovered, before turning and running back upstairs to find our parents in the living room.

“Mom! Dad!” I yelled, barreling towards them. “There’s a… there’s a cave or something in our bedroom!” I don’t know why I thought this would be news to them – after all, my father had been living there for over a month already, and he certainly would have been made aware of any caverns connected to his house – but they played along as though it was new information.
