11 Time Capsules Buried Around North Carolina You Probably Didn’t Know About

Last year, a time capsule was unearthed and opened in Raleigh and you’d think they were giving away money – that many people showed up to see what on Earth had been in the Earth all those years. Without a doubt, the contents of time capsules are irresistibly curious. It’s engaging and fun to know what our ancestors thought was important enough in their day to include in a gift to future generations. We dug up (no pun intended) a list of time capsules waiting for their big day in North Carolina. Check them out below.
