I lived in a home in Arcata Ca,(3rd oldest in town) that had newspapers glued to the inside of the exterior walls with civil war battle accounts as some of the stories. We tried everything we could to remove some of them with no luck. So we just left some of them exposed to the inside and it was a pretty neat look.
