How cool is this?! A couple in Wilmot made quite the discovery while they were remodeling their home.

Bill Schmidt and Maria Leimuller were pulling insulation and wood out of their living room walls, when an ancient newspaper fell out. It turned out to be a copy of the Kenosha Telegraph, printed in - get this - 1874! It even included a story about then-President Ulysses S. Grant.

The couple found other papers from different years, as well. To see pictures and read more, check this link out!
