A MAN has shared a recent discovery in his historic home right behind his 128-year-old fireplace mantle.

He shared on TikTok their unique find full of a "treasure trove" of secrets.

Illusionists Ted and Marion Outerbridge (@thekeyholehouse) share on TikTok many of the secrets of their historic home, dubbed The Keyhole House.

Located in Smith Falls, Ontario, the 19th-century home contains many stories within its walls, and the duo helps bring them to light.

In a TikTok video, Ted revealed what they found nestled behind the home's fireplace mantel.

"We discovered a treasure trove of artifacts behind our 1893 fireplace mantel!" the video's caption read.
