The demolition of the original Dahlstrom Motors building in Oslo, Minnesota led to a century-old surprise.

A wedding ring was found in the rubble after the building was torn down last Wednesday. The ring is from 1907.

According to an inscription it belonged to "Great Grandpa Charlie" Dahlstrom and his wife Anna. You can still clearly read the engraving of their initials.

The ring had been under the original wood floor of the Dahlstrom & Nordstrom General store. A new modern building is being constructed on the site.
