Construction Workers Smash Low Ceiling In Old Room, Uncover 114-Year-Old Stained Glass Window

Renovations of old buildings can sometimes be messy, smelly, and even dangerous. But every so often, they result in incredible discoveries.

Point Park University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is in the process of renovating the city’s old Stock Exchange building, as well as the other buildings around it. The project’s plan is to create a new theater for the university.

While renovating the old building, construction workers and architects made an unbelievable discovery.

A low ceiling, installed in the 1950s, had to be removed — but no one was expecting what they would find above it. It wasn’t just another ceiling. It was a stunning stained glass window.

Upon looking further, the team learned the window is 114-years-old, covered up nearly 70 nears ago.

Now, the window is being restored. Eventually, construction workers will reinstall it in the new theater, adding a stunning, historical touch to the building.

Although most people in the new playhouse will be focused on the actors and the show in front of them, this gorgeous window will serve as a fantastic reminder of the building, and city’s, rich history. I don’t think I would be able to keep my eyes off of it!

Check out the video below to see the beautiful window, and please SHARE this amazing discovery on Facebook!
