'Century Chest' Time Capsule Opened In Oklahoma After 100 Years
When it was opened this past Monday, many historical treasures were found including the April 22, 1913 issue of The Daily Oklahoman, a 1913 telephone, examples of women's fashions of the day, Native American artifacts and a pair of women's shoes
As well the chest contained a pen used by President William McKinley to sign the 1900 Free Homes Act for Oklahoma, and a phonograph record featuring voices of people from that era.
One woman's dream came true when her great-grandmother's book of family stories was revealed. Virginia Weinmann always knew that these items were included and hoped she would live long enough to see them. Inside was also a photo of her mother.
