A few more digging and they unearthed what seems to be the entrance to a fall out shelter.
Fallout shelters are underground vaults that is supposed to house people in case of a nuclear fallout or some catastrophic event. They were popular during the 1950s and 60s when the threat of nuclear war between the US and the Soviet Russia was looming.

Now the fallout shelter is usable and perfectly safe. Who knows, the family might be able to use it in the near future, in case a zombie apocalypse happens. Or maybe if someone just wanted to do some fallout-themed party. The possibilities are endless!
