Crews renovating Detroit s Michigan Central Station made an incredible discovery last week when they unearthed a 100 year old message in a bottle.

Last year, Ford Motor Company made the announcement that they were planning and renovating the old Michigan Central Station and turning it into a “walkable” 30-acre campus. The station, which opened in 1913, has been shuttered since 1988.

I can only imagine the history that building holds. However, as reported by Fox 2 Detroit, crews were in the process of removing an unstable wall when one worker suddenly called for them to stop. Inside the plaster was this bottle complete with a note inside:

A lot of guesses were made on what the note would say. In fact, a Facebook contest was held asking the public to guess. Those who came the closest would be allowed to hide their own message in a bottle inside Michigan Central Station.

My immediate thought (or hope) is that the message, surely, must be a map to a previously undiscovered, million dollar fortune. Right? Not so much.

Instead the note simply read:

Dan Hogan and Geo Smith stuck this [illegible] of Chicago. July 1913.

Research completed by Ford revealed that Dan Hogan was a plasterer from Chicago and guessed that both men were likely part of the original crew that erected Michigan Central Station.

A number of different artifacts have surfaced thanks to the remodeling of Michigan Central Station like this button, believed to be from a pair of overalls from around 1913:

An itemized list of the discoveries hasn t been made available just yet but things like women s shoes, adding machines and more are among the treasures being found behind these ancient walls. Check out Fox 2 Detroit s full coverage and snag a peek at other discovered items below:
