100 Year Old Newspaper Discovered in West Michigan

WZZM

Fragments of a century-old newspaper were found in the walls of a Holland home, I always love finding stuff like this.    Looks like Habitat for Humanity were remodeling a home for a Holland family, when they discovered the old paper inside a wall.

 

Turns out it was from September 27, 1907 Holland Daily Sentinel was discovered along with a copy of “Harper’s Second Reader,” from 1888 as well as an umbrella. Hmm, I wonder how the Umbrella held up?

Looks like they will donate the items to a museum. I love finding cool old stuff like this. Once in my moms old cottage we found a world Atlas from 1906! It was especially awesome because there were some pieces that were missing on the globe!
