May 30, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A recent fire in a Milwaukee public school that dates back to 1894 resulted in an unusual find: a U.S. flag left in an unused attic area for more than 100 years.

District officials say the flag is from 1897 and has 45 stars, representing the number of states at that time.

They said the flag is believed to have been in the attic for 112 years.
