Thank you all for your patience! We want to apologize for whisking away the capsule so quickly at the Pufferbilly Days Opening Ceremony, but we were really worried about the rain! It turns out there are more than FOUR HUNDRED items in the capsule, much of which are paper documents, and they were all inside cardboard boxes. To preserve the items, we have them at the Historical Society and they are currently on display in our main gallery, come by and see them during our open hours,Tuesday-Friday 1-4 pm.
Please check the list to see if you believe there is an item from your family. The Historical Society would like to keep as many artifacts from the capsule intact as possible for their display and collection at the museum. However, we understand that some family items people would like returned. We would love if you would allow us to photograph or copy the item for our records. We will be adding additional lists of names from the posters, items, and books with signatures inside.
If you have any questions regarding the time capsule please e-mail or call us!
HAPPY 150TH BIRTHDAY BOONE, IOWA!
