It sounds very much like a WWI stronghold. It was very common in the Detroit metro area to bury family heirlooms, precious metal, money, and anything of value. Being that close to the border with Canada, it was a serious threat that we could be invaded and looted. That area being a middle eastern settlement was especially prone to looting. You hear about these being found and opened occasionally. Many are unfound and still hold the valuables that were placed in them for safe keeping. During the war, many men were killed and families were split up or relocated. These underground safes were typically left with the intention of coming back for their stuff later. You definitely want to open up a hole and get in there to search for stuff. Some weren't very large and only held gold and silver coins as they didn't have time to dig bigger strongholds before the war got too involved.

my wife's grandfather told me a similar story. He lived in dearborn during both wars.
