The time capsule was placed in the cornerstone of the Massachusetts Statehouse when construction for the statehouse began in 1795. It was paced by Paul Revere and Samuel Adams, among other notable Revolutionary era figures. Some artifacts were in great condition, others didn't fair so well with time. Items in the box included currency, newspapers, and tools. Items will be on display at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts for a period of time, but eventually the items will be returned to the foundation.
