Slideshow: 1924 Time Capsule Scroll

A 1924 Time Capsule was unearthed on Thursday, September 27 at Jacksonville’s Memorial Park, containing a scroll of 1,220 names of Floridians who died in WWI. The time capsule was brought to the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum’s conservation lab on Friday, September 28 due to water intrusion.

On Monday, October 1, the Conservation team at the Museum, along with expert paper conservator Ann Siebert, opened the copper box containing the scroll. See PHOTOS below taken by Mark Krancer for Memorial Park Association.
