When Ken Zwick and Carol Hollar-Zwick bought their Neenah home in 1999, they knew the backyard contained an underground fallout shelter built during the height of the Cold War.

What they didn’t know — and wouldn’t discover until they ventured into the shelter more than a decade later — was the bunker was fully stocked with food and survival supplies from 1960 by the previous homeowner.

“We assumed it was just this empty space,” Hollar-Zwick said.

Because you did not want to move the skeletons of those who wanted in 40 years ago?

I've got a tiny door in my basement, and it is recorded in library records that my house house, and the one next door were part of the underground railroad. Been here 13 years and have yet to open it. So, these things do happen.
