A Family Discovered Treasure from the Past Hidden Under Their Stairs

A family discovered a mysterious safe buried in the floor while cleaning their house in rural Tennessee. We can only imagine the family’s mad anticipation and sense of urgency.

They tried possible combinations like their grandparents’ birthdays and social security numbers to unlock the safe. Unfortunately, none worked. So they finally decided to hire a locksmith to help them.
