Contractors often find old and hidden treasures when they start tearing down walls and pulling floors up in old homes and commercial buildings. Whether it’s old photos, clothes or even money, it gives a glimpse to a bygone era. It also provides historical proof of what people were doing at the time. The Spa Dental building in Ballston Spa, New York, has gone through many uses since it was re-built after a fire in 1909; law offices, dental lab, and Boy Scout offices. The two-story building is owned by Dr. James Hansen and his wife Susan Hansen. They have been using the main floor for the husband’s dental practise. The upstairs, however, had been left untouched, for the most part. “The upstairs was always just for storage, empty,” says Susan Hansen. That changed when their contractor Paul Marotta began renovating the area to convert it into apartment space.
