Episode WCT-202See all Episodes
First, an Iowa woman with a lifelong interest in sculpture restores her home and discovers its link to a pioneering female sculptor. Next, a Washington woman restores a small 1880s Victorian house and discovers hidden treasure under the stairs and buried in the backyard. She uses the hundreds of old newspapers found under the stairs to open and stock a local reading room, and the 10 bottles of scotch found in the backyard have an interesting story of their own. Then, a Chicago family's restoration uncovers a forgotten staircase in their home. The family guesses at what the stairs were used for and why they were later hidden.
