A woman bought a 1910 Cape Cod style house in Minneapolis last month (December 2013) and decided to remodel the kitchen. She pulled off a baseboard and found 12 glass jars filled with gold dust, plus letters and postcards from 1907-1909. In 2012 a workman found $300,000 worth of gold dust stored in jars under the floor in a California house.
