January 7, 2015

Last month, workers repairing a leak at the Massachusetts State House in Boston uncovered a time capsule originally placed in the building's cornerstone in 1795. It was buried by Paul Revere and Samuel Adams, who was then governor of Massachusetts.

On January 6, 2015, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston opened the 220 year-old time capsule.
