Soldier's Room Has Stayed Untouched For Almost 100 Years As A Beautiful Tribute

Hubert Rochereau was a Second Lieutenant for the French Army during World War 1. He left home for war and his parents left his room alone so it would be the way he left it upon his return. Hubert was killed from wounds inflicted in battle in Belgium on April 26, 1918. His parents were obviously devastated and sold the home in 1936 with a special clause in the deed.

The soldier’s bedroom must remain exactly the way it was for 500 years. So far, it’s been almost an entire century and the bedroom has been left exactly as it was the day Second Lieutenant Hubert left for war. The bedroom is still full of all of his possessions. His military jackets have holes from moths and have been tattered over the years. His desk is still covered with his military paperwork and personal pictures. There’s even an untouched gun collection.

The current owner of the home has done some research and has found that there is no legal basis binding him to keeping the room that way. He does respect the history and memory of this veteran and plans to keep the room the same. There have been 2 previous owners who have felt the same way and have kept the room perfectly intact.
