On April 22nd, 1913 a timecapsule, or Century Chest, was entombed in the basement of an Oklahoman Church with the promise of the congregation that it would not be opened for a century. The 8 feet long Century Chest was buried by the Ladies Aid Society of the First Lutheran Church in Oklahoma City. It started out as a charity project to raise funds for the purchase of a new pipe organ. Excitement and enthusiasm took over and it soon became a citywide project and later on even people across state wanted to participate. They really thought about what people a hundred years later would want to see and therefore included, for that time, some cutting edge technologies. Exactly hundred years later, on April 22nd, 2013 the chest was opened. The gathered crowd was amazed when they saw which artifacts were in the chest. Amongst the treasures found were the following items: A well preserved Kodak camera with the negatives in it A Phonograph and three voice recordings A Desk Pioneer Telephone Indian pottery Railroad map of Oklahoma A daily Oklahoman newspaper A book of family pictures and poems from Virginia Sohlberg, who was the mastermind behind the project Numerous letters to descendants Coffee A signature quilt You can find a list of all items found here! All artifacts will be preserved by the Oklahoma History Center and is now on exhibit. If you could fill a timecapsule today, what should definitely be in it?
