Wow! How old is that house? You just don't see brick work like that (nor basements) here in California. What's up with the walled in door? Do they keep the bodies on the other side?

The walled up door, was the old walk out exit, that they sealed for some reason. The whole basement felt like a murder scene anyway.

The foundation was original stone, and some areas were brick. The whole place permeated moisture.

OH YEAH, that building was originally erected in the late 1800's early 1900's or so.

Awesome (except for the moisture of course). Looks like an old mafia hide out :D

Hey, if you want to learn about old mob hideouts (especially Capone and his Chicago connections), look to Walker, Minnesota and the Leech Lake area.  The "boys" used this area as their getaway/hideout way before it was a popular tourist area.  I have good knowledge from a former client who's grandmother and mother worked the family "resort" and met Capone several times!  Pretty interesting to hear the stories!
