New Hampshire Public Radio reports Krystin Cooney, of Deerfield, and her family went looking for a moose behind their home after a neighbor spotted one. Instead, they came across what Cooney’s fourth-grade daughter, Ellie, described as “a really cool fort.”

After doing some research, they realized they had stumbled upon a crypt of former residents, the Norris family.

Ellie said she found it creepy at first, but she’s gotten used to it and told her classmates about the discovery during a virtual class meeting.
