A FAMILY BOUGHT AN OLD MANSION AND FOUND A WALLED-UP SECRET ROOM IN IT, WHICH HAD NOT BEEN ENTERED FOR 102 YEARS.

A young family bought an old house and decided to renovate it. During the renovation they found a secret room which hadn’t been entered for 102 years. What was hiding there and why the couple was shocked??

When a French family bought a house in the village of Belabre in the southwest of the country, they had no idea that they would open a portal to the past here.

The mid-19th century house was empty for six years and was purchased by a young family in 2020. The couple began to renovate and noticed that there was a secret room in the house, blocked with bricks. When they broke the masonry, they were miraculously transported back in time. The room contained things that were over a hundred years old.

The owners saw a military jacket standing on a stand in the very center of the room. Moths had already eaten it, but it looked almost new. A lot of amazing things were found on the table: pistols, candlesticks, an ashtray and old photographs.

There was also a bottle with soil, and on it the inscription: “The land of Flanders, in which our son Hubert Rochereau rested for four years.” On the bed lay the orders of the former owner of this room, and above it was a large portrait of a young man in uniform. The new owners wondered who this Hubert Rochereau was.

It turned out that he was a lieutenant in the French army during the First World War. He went to the front back in 1915. Hubert went through three years of war and, at the age of 22, fell on the fields of modern Belgium. At first he was buried on the battlefield, but in 1922 his remains were transferred to his native village.

Hubert’s parents decided never to enter his room again, so they blocked it with bricks. In 1935, they sold the house to a general, from whom they took an oath not to break the brickwork.

After the general, the house went to his descendants, who lived in it for seven decades. The last owner of the house died in 2014. So the building came up for auction.

The new owners did not know about the hundred-year-old tradition. But now they intend to turn Hubert Rochereau’s room into a museum.
