Time Capsules Historical Markers

Time capsules preserve the salient features of history and can serve as valuable reminders of one generation for another. They can be found the world over and have been placed in the cornerstones of buildings, within parks, inside of monuments, at historic sites, and so forth. Usually, but not always, there is a commemorative plaque or sign of some sort to indicate the occasion of the placement, the date it was placed, the date to be opened, and the sponsoring organization.
