Hidden Treasure Found in Basement

We were downstairs working this week and were demolishing a partition that had to come down. It was made of this horrible fiberboard over 2x4 studs, so it fairly well came apart in our hands. Imagine our surprise when we found another wall beneath it!

Early in the building's history, it was a bank (a Leader Federal, actually). Apparently, we found the wall to an office that dated back to the bank era. It is a deep, rich cherry finish with paneling to the waist and glass above that, to about 8 feet or so. We had planned to tear the old wall down completely, but this is just too beautiful to destroy. So, now we have to configure the floorspace in such a way to integrate it.

I will post pictures later.
