Having kept it to himself for the first few years, Nygaard handed the package to council authorities for safe-keeping in the 1920s.
“We haven’t the faintest idea what’s inside,” said Kjell Voldheim, who works at the Gudbrandsdal Museum where the package is held.
“It’s going to be incredibly exciting. We have fantasized a lot about what it might contain. The council has expressed a desire for it to contain a sheaf of oil shares that could help the municipality,” he told newspaper VG.
Voldheim is one of two people who will open the package on Friday, when the century-old secret will finally be revealed. http://www.thelocal.no/page/view/town-ho...ld-package
