Well, that was definitely the case for these construction workers who were able to dig up a 150-year-old secret! Click ahead to find out what exactly they found. You won’t believe it!
#18 It Was Just A Normal Day On The Job
It was May of 2016 when Boston construction workers were going about their average day of building.

It was a rare discovery that caused quite the excitement around the construction site. You won’t believe what they found…
#17 This Was The Most Priceless Thing On The Site
The location they were building on was on the waterfront. The area was home to plenty of fancy restaurants and high-rise condos. Billions of dollars have been invested in creating such a luxurious area so there was plenty of construction going on. But no money could have been spent to find what those construction workers found that day.
#16 Skanska Is The Company
The company hired to do the project is Skanska. It’s the company responsible for other commercial development projects, such as The World Trade Center Transportation Hub. They are reportedly the fifth largest construction company in the country. Their discovery might have helped set them ahead of others just a bit as you will see on the next slides!

#14 Everything Stopped
When you’re the fifth largest company in the country, you can’t really just stop construction whenever you want. You need to be sure to constantly work to meet and make deadlines. However, when construction workers made such an incredible discovery, they took it upon themselves to be sure to halt construction and really explore just what they found.
