Time capsule buried in Courthouse Square to be unearthed
Thursday, February 1 at noon, one of two time capsules buried in Old Courthouse Square on March 16, 1968, will be unearthed and delivered to the Anthropology Lab at Sonoma State University. There, it will be opened in a controlled environment where the contents will be documented and conserved. After the preservation is completed, the artifacts will be readied for a public unveiling on March 17, 2018 in Courthouse Square from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. The community is invited and encouraged to attend on that date.
The second of the two time capsules will continue to reside in the vault until 2068, Santa Rosa’s Bicentennial.
Santa Rosa’s Sesquicentennial will be greatly celebrated this coming September 8. Many public endeavors are being planned leading up to the highly anticipated late summer Downtown event: Santa Rosa’s 150th Birthday.
