Developers renovating historic Florida hotel make amazing finds

Daily Mail Logo Daily Mail | Slide 1 of 15: Technically it's a hotel renovation - but it's turned into a treasure hunt. Developers renovating a historic hotel in Florida once visited by John F. Kennedy have been startled by a series of incredible discoveries, unearthed as walls have been taken down and wallpaper peeled away. They've found a hand-cranked antique elevator, a staircase leading to nowhere, brick fireplaces, an original wooden telephone switchboard, hand-painted wallpaper, hand-carved columns and newspaper clippings with adverts for horse-drawn carriages.
