What is behind the mystery door???
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT)--A building demolition in the Dundee neighborhood unearthed a mystery.
What appears to be a sealed door has work crews and folks at the Durham Museum scratching their heads.
"I thought the same thing I think a lot of people thought," Harlan Jentz said. He's part of the crew filling in this pit with dirt. "It was just a way people smuggled whiskey during prohibition."
Jentz' theory on prohibition being a possibility is shared by Tim Lambert, also a part of that work crew.
"Maybe during prohibition, they stored liquor under there, I don't know," Lambert wondered.
The pair says one thing is very obvious, the concrete is old. They believe it might actually have been poured from the other side that isn't exposed.
Sealing away a mystery, simply marked with the number 56.
We took our quest for answers to the folks at the Durham Museum, specifically to the photo archive.
That's where we met Bill Gonzalez.
"Interesting, it really is," Gonzalez said. "I would really like to know what's behind those sealed doors."
