Time Capsule dating back to 1920 found in USA:- Construction workers discovered a time capsule from 1920 in the rubble during a demolition project at Owatonna High School in Owatonna, Minnesota. The capsule was discovered when construction workers were demolishing the front pillars and doors of the school. The time capsule was decoded today during a community event. Items found inside included a 1920 list of Owatonna Public Schools teachers and administrators and a high school magnet. Also found inside the time capsule were the school newspaper, three local newspapers, and financial reports. A time capsule is a collection of objects assembled to preserve the memory of a place. Time capsules can also capture an experience or group of people at a specific point in time.

School District Superintendent Jeff Elstad elaborated on the matter in an interaction with Fox Television. He said: “We were thrilled to discover that a time capsule had been placed in the cornerstone of our high school. It's always inspiring to learn about the visionaries who build schools.'' Many things are similar to what would be included in a time capsule, such as newspapers and local history. He said he enjoyed finding articles that specifically provided information about the school at the time. The Owatonna High School Museum Committee worked with the Steele County Historical Society to dry and preserve the items. Once preserved, a decision will be made as to which pieces will be displayed at the school and which will be transferred to the Historical Society's collection.

Jeff said the discovery had enabled the community to gather information about local history. He said he and the Owatonna High School Museum Committee appreciated the historical significance of the time capsule. Jeff said he is committed to preserving history for posterity.
