100-Year-Old Mystery Package Finally Opened in Norway
One hundred years ago a man delivered a sealed package to the mayor of a small Norway town. Written on it, the words: “May be opened in 2012.”
That day came on Friday August 24, 2012, 100 years after it was delivered to Johan Nygaard, the first mayor of the Otta, Norway.
The package was securely kept at the Gudbrandsdal museum in Norway where for years many speculated on what might be inside. Stocks in oil? Historical documents? Titanic’s Blue Star Diamond?
Inside, the contents included documents and decorative banners (whatever that means), according to Mashable. Shortly after it was opened, officials took the contents out of the limelight to organize them. A list of the items is expected to be released later Friday afternoon. Refresh this page for updates.
