"In 1979 when the building was first constructed as the 5 seasons center they actually put a time capsule in one of the pillars that was outside," said Caitlin Treece, Carl and Mary Koehler History Center. "It was decided that it'd be a great time to put a new time capsule in next to the old time capsule."
The items will be on display during museum hours Wednesday and Thursday. The capsule is scheduled to be sealed on Friday.
There has not been a date set on when the capsule will be opened.
