Opening a 1795 Time Capsule: See What's Inside!

 

There are few things that excite us more than the prospect of a hidden or surprise treasure!  Our friends up in Boston recently experienced this exact thing!  Back on July 4, 1795, Samuel Adams, who was then Governor of Massachusetts, and Paul Revere put a time capsule inside the cornerstone of the Massachusetts State House.  Though this was a common practice, researchers had no reason to believe this cornerstone had one, so when workers discovered the box, it caused quite a stir.  

Thankfully for us...they opened the box and let us see the treasure inside.  Click below to find out what was inside!
