Peek inside this $1.595 million two-family brick rowhouse at 476 Degraw Street in Carroll Gardens and it looks anything but historic. That's because the three-story home, built in the 1850s for a Gowanus Canal tugboat captain (now that's a gig we'd pass up), just went through a pretty thorough renovation. In fact, while pulling up the old flooring, all sorts of antique trinkets were found, like nails, buttons, a clothespin, a spoon and a protractor, the Brooklyn Eagle reports. These mementos of yesteryear will now be framed and presented to the house's buyer as a closing gift. Check out the house's woodsy backyard; we bet there's some fun stuff buried out there, too. And we know just the guy to call!
