When I think of secret passages and hidden rooms, old movies with large old mansions first come to mind.
There are currently re-runs of shows like Dark Shadows . When I was younger, I would dream that someday I would have a big old house with a secret passage that I could hide in. Well now I have the old house but a hidden room is still on my to-do list.
Historic homes with safe rooms for slaves or secret panels for whiskey during prohibition – although most people think of Hollywood, these secret passages and hidden rooms can be added to any house today.
