Crystal Preserves History, Time Capsule to Be Opened in 2060
Friday was a day to preserve history in the city of Crystal.
Sixth-graders at FAIR Middle School helped put items in the capsule, including letters, newspaper articles, COVID masks and predictions, including one that gives Minnesota sports fans hope.
“One of the kids wrote that the Vikings could actually have a successful season and win the Super Bowl. So I think there are a lot of people hoping for that,” said Therese Kiser with the Crystal Historical Society.
James Einfeldt-Brown came up with the idea for a capsule.
“We need to tell a story of what Crystal was in the year 2020,” said Einfeldt-Brown, also a member of the Crystal Historical Society.
The capsule will be opened in the year 2060, when the city of Crystal turns 100 years old.
