Memories of the Time Capsule from Mr. Richard Phelps
'Somewhere in the fiscal court record is an order to open it on the designated date. I hope to still be around 32 more years!! -MR. RICHARD PHELPS
About: Look at the past in the future
By Richard Phelps
1992 Kentucky Bicenntennial Time Capsule Organizer
Regarding the time capsule. I was the person in charge of the time capsule project in 1992.
The items that I remember are:
Many photographs of people, children, etc. placed in moisture proof containers, advertisment from just about every business which was here in 1992.The capsule itself is a 5' Wilbert Concrete Monticello Burial Vault.
It contains about 2 feet deep inside of time capsule items as named above and many many other things.
Somewhere in the fiscal court record is an order to open it on the designated date. I hope to still be around 32 more years!!
It would be a thrill for me to still be alive and see it opened. Richard Phelps
