Bottles of wine and liquor almost as old as America itself were recently discovered behind a wall at a museum in New Jersey. The Liberty Hall Museum in Union says it discovered almost three full cases of Madeira wine, a fortified wine, dating to 1796 while restoring its wine cellar. NJ.com reports the museum also found 42 demijohns large glass jugs sometimes used for holding spirits dating to the 1820s. The museum said the monetary value of the wine cannot be made public. The museum was once the home of New Jersey’s first governor, William Livingston.
