A Community Gathering Place
In May of 2011 we found a time capsule. Preservation carpenter Tim Wolhueter was repairing the tower when he saw the center of the top granite block had been chiseled out just enough to hold a small metal chest. Tim was hopeful and expectant.
He called out to everyone around anticipating the treasure. Tim, June Miller, Evy Dueck, Mark Smith and Marty Miller were present for the opening, and their disappointment was plain. The contents were paper mush. Not a single tool or coin. 124 years later and the contents were just paper pulp.
