Time Capsule Gives Us A Sense of What It Was Like to Live A Century Ago.


Time capsules are awesome. I’ve always wanted to make one. You can communicate with people in the future (sort-of) by placing a bunch of your old junk in a box and burying it. But what’s even better than making time capsule? Finding one.

An Oklahoma town got the opportunity to do just that when it opened the “Century Chest,” a time capsule that was buried in 1913 with instructions for it not to be opened for a hundred years. This is a pretty awesome look into the past and how people used to live. Check out a some of the stuff the people of 1913 wanted us to see!

Desk telephone, Pioneer Telephone and Telegraph Co.

Costume Royal Magazine from May 1913


A newspaper from April 22nd, 1913.


Of course, people in 1913 had to have their Quality Coffee too.

An Oklahoma State flag.

This is pretty cool – it’s a letter to the people of 2013!

I’ve never heard of anything like this before – this is a letter written in brail from the blind people of 1913 to those of 2013.


Here’s a bible written in the Choctaw language. I doubt you’ve seen one of these before.

Wow, these would be really cool to take a look at – The Constitution, Treaties and Laws of the Chickasaw Nation.


This might be my favorite of the bunch – A Edison Graphophone.
