Your Own (Very) Secret Room

Ever wanted your own secret room, hidden passageway, or dungeon? These days, you don't need to purchase a castle to make that dream come true. Dozens of companies now specialize in creating fireplaces that rotate with the twist of a candlestick, staircases that rise to reveal hidden chambers, or library shelves that spin around when a certain book is removed. There was even a story (with some cool photos) in the New York Times last year about the growing popularity of these features. So if you're thinking of building a new home, you might want to investigate one of the sites that specialize in creating secret rooms to fit your every need.

While we're on the subject, I recommend checking out the legend of the secret room in Scotland's haunted Glamis Castle, which is said to be inhabited by either a hideously deformed aristocrat or a monster.

I haven't been there, but I know about it. Come to think of it, old Ludwig might make for a good post.

Yeah, King Ludwig was a wacko. Did you know that on the night he died, his body was fished out of the lake? Someone just got tired of him, I guess....
