Story Summary

Sam's Aunt Liz planned to turn an old mansion into a museum and asked Sam and his cousin, Jeremy, to explore the old house while she met with some donors. Sam and Jeremy's greatest discovery was an old dumbwaiter in perfect working order which they rode up to the second floor. The only trouble was when they got out it was 64 years earlier and the house was filled with people.
