Treasure Hunting

Sometimes the best surprises really do come unexpectedly. Yesterday, while working on another project, I pulled a box that was labeled only MISC.  Boxes marked miscellaneous always seem to have the greatest treasures and this one was no exception.

Inside the standard archives box was a metal box.  When the metal box finally popped open it documents and case files dating back to 1819.  As far as we know, these are some of the oldest government documents still remaining from the clerk and court files.

Because these documents are so important and so fragile they will take time to fully process. Many more treasures wait to be found inside!

This metal box containing case files and documents dating back to 1819 was recently rediscovered.
