Spotlight Event: Time Capsule Opening

24 May

by Emma Earnst

This coming Sunday, May 27th, 2012, Charlottesville’s 1962 time capsule, buried during the 200th Anniversary celebrations that year, will be unearthed and opened for public consumption.  Items will be shared with attendees, and then transferred to yours truly (ACHS), for display in our exhibit space.

Below, you will find a video of the burial in 1962.  As you may recall, the exact location of the capsule could not be determined until Tom Hartsell shared this footage, found among his father’s 8mm videos, in August 2011.
