He found hidden treasure in his own house, overnight millionaire


An American lawyer chose an old house for his office. The house was in need of extensive repairs. The lawyer knew he would have to spend a lot of money to repair it. But in reality, what happened is just the opposite. When he went to fix the house, he became the owner of one lakh dollars (about 84 lakh 64 thousand).

It is known that the name of the lawyer is David J. Whitcomb. During the repairs, he found some old items in a secret room at home. Later he earned so much money by selling Nimale.

The old house was owned by the American painter James Elary Hall. He lived in this house from 1892 to 1920. The house has been sold more than once since his death. Whitcomb bought the last house. But before that no one had found the hidden treasure in the house. Whitcomb found a secret door on the ceiling to repair after purchase. He peeked inside the door and saw several pictures stored.

Whitcomb later entered the room with a friend. He was surprised to see a collection of many old expensive pictures there. They were actually the gallery of the painter Hall. Hale used to collect precious pictures in this room. However, the lawyer had no idea how much the pictures might cost.

Whitcomb then contacted Dan Winstock, president of the Geneva Historical Society. It is up to him to learn more about the paintings and the painter Hall. Later from the house he got lots of pictures, photography equipment. All the pictures were from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Whitcomb was overwhelmed when he found out that the pictures were precious. He contacted an auction house in New York. He kept some pictures in his collection and auctioned the rest. In all, the pictures have been sold for one lakh dollars.
