The Zwick family had been living in their home in Neenah, Wisconsin for over a decade. They always knew there was a metal door hidden in the ground in their backyard, but they never thought to explore it before. Then, one day, the family decided to crack open the metal hatch.
As it turns out, there was a Cold War-era fallout shelter buried in the backyard. A ladder led them down into a bunker, which was a treasure trove, full of items from the past.
This ladder led down to the bunker, which was filled with water. There were boxes floating, filled with supplies
“It was all of what you would expect to find in a 1960s fallout shelter. It was food, clothing, medical supplies, tools, flashlights, batteries – items that you would want to have in a shelter if you planned to live there for two weeks.”
