From long-lost keepsakes to hidden rooms, surprise discoveries are not so uncommon when fixing up commercial structures. But what Susan Hansen found in this old building was so unique that it would add real value to her property. And more than that, it was just plain awesome.
Dating back to the early 20th century, the two-story building is located in Ballston Spa, New York. Susan and her husband, Dr. James Hansen, had already converted the ground floor into a dental surgery. However, the couple seriously underused the upper floor. “The upstairs was always just for storage, empty,” Susan told The Daily Gazette.
