1. Greetings to Future Harrisburgers Marker
Inscription. In a shaft directly beneath this monument, in a metal cylinder is contained a documented history of Harrisburg from it's early beginnings along with evidences of the way of life in our time.
It is our fervent hope that you will bring them to light during 2060, prior to your bi-centennial celebration, sort them out and again inter some of them along with your own for evaluation by future generations.
May God guide your endeavors.
The Centennial Committee
September, 1960
