A Fascinating Discovery Under a Backyard Metal Trapdoor (8 pics)

This family finally decided to open this metal door on their property and this is what they found inside.

It was time to find out what that metal door was hiding.
The heavy steel hatch opened up to reveal a 8-foot-by-10-foot bunker.

This ladder led down to the bunker, which was filled with water. There were boxes floating, filled with supplies.

The shelter's previous owner packed away food and snacks for their stay underground.

It was all of what you would expect to find in a 1960's 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.

The vintage products were the best part of the discovery.

The family donated all of the items to the Neenah Historical Society.

The vault in their yard was a giant time capsule.
