Time Capsule Mansion

I know, two posts in one day. In an hour. Annoying. But I had to share this. I've just read on the National Geographic website about a house that was sealed up when it's owner died. In his will he asked that nobody open it for a century after his death, after which it should be open to the public. It was opened in October, and you should see some of the things inside!

The full article is available online here. Go take a look.

  1. This is pretty amazing. A real glimpse into life (wealthy life, but still life) at the turn of the 20th century. Thanks!

  2. It's fascinating isn't it? If I'm ever in that part of France I'll have to go and check it out for myself.
