Have you ever wondered what lies below your home? Well, these Pennsport homeowners took some initiative by digging a hole in their backyard, and they found something pretty interesting.
Their home on the 200 block of Dickinson Street was built around the 1830’s. Upon digging the hole of the outhouse pit in their backyard, they found arched bricks that continue down into what they say “appear(s) to be tunnels.” So, Pennsport experts, any idea of what this brick pit could be?
The homeowners said they could always tell something was there, because the bricks from privy stack for the outhouse always dipped in a lot. But below that outhouse pit, it continues down with arched bricks into this tunnel-like structure. So it appears that whatever lies below was built first and then the owners later knowingly covered it with the outhouse structure.
If you recall, just recently a wood-blocked street was discovered in Pennsport. So let’s hope for some more cool urban archeology finds.
Anyone out there have any ideas of what this could be?
