After the majority of the smaller items were handled, they turned their attention to the house, Grange Farm, where their family lived when Jack and Audrey were children. Instead of auctioning it off to the highest bidder, Jack and Audrey decided to claim the home as their own and move in immediately.
From the moment they moved into Grange Farm, Jack and Audrey made an attempt to live off the land. They avoided the grocery store whenever possible and farmed well into their '80s.
This odd brother-sister pair isolated themselves for more than seven decades -- and when they both passed away, the question of who inherits the house came up again. But, this time there weren't children to claim the property!
Jack and Audrey spent their years alone, never had children and never married. This time, city officials decided to auction off Grange Farm and the contents within.
But when people entered the home for the first time following Jack's passing, they were taken aback by what they saw. Instead of current appliances and updates, the home was filled with the same items from Jack and Audrey's childhood.
For more than 70 years, the sibling pair lived in the past and made no attempt to join the modern world. Learn more about this fascinating Victorian time capsule in the video here.
