Above is what we found in a time capsule located in the cornerstone of the original building.  These papers were in a hollowed out portion of the stone with a piece of metal over the top of them.  Needless to say they are very old and brittle.  We are attempting to open them with the help of some specialists in the field.  We will keep you posted on our progress.
