Christian County Museum and Historical Society collects artifacts for 2021 time capsule
CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Mo. (KY3) – The Christian County Museum and Historical Society is looking to collect material for a time capsule depicting Christian County in 2021.
This comes as the date of a time capsule excavation approaches a century ago. In 1921, residents compiled material for a time capsule that was placed behind the cornerstone of a then newly constructed Christian County courthouse.
Citizens, business owners, schools and students are encouraged to collect articles for the 2021 capsule, especially articles that reflect Christian County.
Shannon Mawhiney, president of the Christian County Museum and Historical Society, says they also want to show what life was like during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We hope people get creative and give us everything that represents their lives right now,” Mawhinney said. “We try to stick to anything that won’t damage other things in the time capsule.”
Items donated include masks, paintings, photographs and T-shirts.
Although Saturday is the last official day to donate, you can still call the historical society to request a donation.
