Time Capsules in Medford and Watertown

Time capsules have been in the local news recently as two time capsules were unearthed in Boston.  First, a 113-year old time capsule was removed from the head of the lion statue at the Old State House. Then in December an even older time capsule saw the light of day at the State House.  This one was first secreted away in 1795 though it was rehoused and reburied in 1855.  First deposited by Paul Revere, William Scollay and Samuel Adams, the capsule’s contents should be fascinating since so much time has elapsed and its creators played such a large role in our history.

Sometimes I think that time capsule creators don’t do that good a job of gathering evidence of their time.  It’s difficult to decide what sums up an era – what will give people 100 or 200 years from now a real feel for our world.  As a lover of old paper I’ve given this topic some thought over the years.  Plenty of old paper I’ve got socked away brings back earlier times when I comb through the piles. For a time capsule perhaps a collection of essays in which people describe what they do in the course of a day would give a better sense of our lives.  It’s the minutia of the day to day that will likely catch the fancy of people living in very different times. 

I’ve come across a couple of time capsules in Centers and Squares territory.  The one pictured above is in Watertown Square.  It’s due to be opened in 2030, when Watertown celebrates its 400th birthday.  I’m not sure how old the time capsule will be at that point – we’ll just have to be surprised!  And I’m destined to forever wonder what’s in the time capsule outside the Franklin School condos in Medford on Central Ave, pictured at right, since it’s scheduled to be opened in 2075.
