Time capsule unveiled


DES MOINES (KWWL) - Des Moines is unveiling the contents of a time capsule sealed a century ago in the cornerstone of what is now City Hall.

On Friday, city and state historical officials will oversee the opening of the capsule and see what's inside.

The capsule was placed in the cornerstone on June 14, 1910. Construction of city's new Municipal Building then got started.

The time capsule, which was removed from the cornerstone last weekend, is part of the city's celebration marking the 100th anniversary of the building on June 14.
