Time Capsule
Elizabeth J. Johnson Pawtucket History Research Center

Albert Klyberg, then director of the Rhode Island Historical Society, opens the Cogswell fountain time capsule in 1990. The capsule had been tampered with – seemingly pierced with a shovel decades earlier – and water had damaged the newspapers and other documents inside. Pawtucket area residents suggested items for a new time capsule, including photos of Desert Storm troops, My Little Pony toys, and Butterick sew­ing patterns.
