MARYSVILLE – The mystery is solved – well kind of. A Japanese TV show paid an Enumclaw locksmith to drill a hole in the historic safe at the Marysville Museum.

That was after numerous attempts to crack the safe’s combination, and three hours of drilling done by the TV show’s locksmith.

Once the correct hole was drilled, the locksmith from the show was able to see the tumblers and open the safe.

Inside, there were a few old skeleton keys and blueprints dated in 1906. Now the mystery is what do the keys go to and what building are the blueprints for?

The safe was owned by Mark Swinnerton, the first mayor of Marysville. He kept it in his store downtown. Marysville Historical Society president Ken Cage said last week that the TV show contacted him. They apparently found out about the safe through a story Channel 5 did three years ago. The weekly, one-hour show in Japan, translated in English to be “Lessons you never learn in school,” has been on the air for 10 years.
