The 51st Apple n' Pork Festival next weekend benefits the CH Moore Homestead and its maintenance and upkeep, but the old building that has been around for over 100 years still has some secrets.
Friday morning on the WHOW Morning Show, Director of the Homestead and DeWitt County Museum, Joey Woolridge told Regional Radio News earlier this week, she was informed of a hidden compartment in the attic of the old facility.
According to Woolridge, there is a small, two-foot-by-three-foot compartment in the attic floor. Woolridge speculates perhaps CH Moore kept money or important documents in that area.
Woolridge seems to discover something in the house several times a year she wasn't aware of and says it keeps her wondering what other secrets the house may have for them they haven't discovered.
The 51st Apple n' Pork Festival is next Saturday and Sunday, September 28-29 from 9 am to 5 pm at the Homestead Grounds on the corner of Woodlawn and Center Streets.
