Bomb shelter found in family’s garden
Ten years after moving into their house in Wisconsin, the Zwick family finally decided to find out what was beneath the steel doors in their backyard.
Below the hatch was a chamber built by the house’s previous owners to protect themselves from a nuclear attack during the Cold War.
The Zwick family found sealed U.S. Army boxes packed with all the supplies needed for a family to survive 2 weeks underground.
Food, clothing, tools, batteries, medical supplies and flashlights that were found in the chamber were donated to the Neenah Historical Society.
