Proactive steps and small repairs can help to prevent problems later on.

The desire to preserve history, or become history, by burying belongings intended for future generations has transcended time.

From ancient civilizations to modern day, time capsules have remained the most popular instrument for leaving behind messages for the future.

On July 5th, 1909, members of the Commercial Club, now the Salt Lake Chamber, laid a copper box in the cornerstone of the Commercial Club building.

In celebration of the Chamber’s 130th Anniversary, the Salt Lake Chamber had the time capsule exhumed. Inside was a well preserved Holy Bible, a 1909 Commercial Club Year Book, copies of the addresses given at the cornerstone laying, business cards from contractors, and a copy of the Commercial Club’s complaint against the railroad companies.

Like many unearthed time capsules, the Chamber replaced the old copper box with a new one.

The new time capsule is filled with documents and items meant to preserve the Chamber’s history. It’s set to be opened on the Chamber’s 200th anniversary in 2087.
