Wonderful find! Thanks for sharing this and reminding that clues to who our ancestors were can be found anywhere.

I wonder if the current residents would let me rip the wallpaper out of my great-grandparents' house?

A similar experience happened to me.

My sisters and I were cleaning out my mother's home after she passed away and we knocked one of her pictures off the wall. It basically fell apart and low and behold but behind the calendar-like picture was the original marrige certificate of my great-grandparents who were married in 1898 in Potsdam, New York.

Very cool!
