31 Treasures Unearthed From Oklahoma's 1913 Time Capsule
Oh, the difference a century can make. While we tend to think of the past in black and white or sepia tones, it was just as bright as today.
On April 22, 1913, the time capsule was buried by the Governor of Oklahoma and a large crowd in the basement of the First English Lutheran Church in Oklahoma City with an official ceremony. Dubbed a "century chest," the contents were guarded by the congregation of the church for exactly 100 years. On April 22, 1913 the Lutheran Church teamed up with the Oklahoma History Center to unearth, document, and preserve the treasures within.
