Tom Jackson looks on as Ruthie Griggs reads from an edition of The Carroll News as the two shared many of the “voices” evoked by the 1968 Hillsville Time Capsule. Volunteer Shelby Puckett praised the efforts of Delilah Brady, who scanned in many of the restored items to create a digital record of them. These copies were in four notebooks so participants Saturday could better view them. Many of the items were damaged by water and others were in a condition too delicate to allow handling.

The original log book for the 1968 Hillsville Time Capsule was on display Saturday in the Carroll County Historical Society Museum. It was carefully placed in a plastic bag because it was still wet. Spokesperson Tom Jackson told the crowd many pictures in the capsule didn’t make it because of water damage. He told them a new capsule is being planned and invited all to bring something to be placed in it on September 8.

The original guest book signed in 1968 was on display Saturday as an exhibit of items from the copper container were put on display for the public. The water-logged volume contained a flower worn by Bill Copeland’s wife, Bobbie, and a tie worn by Copeland for the interment ceremony of the container. Instructions typed on an envelope containing a degraded reel of magnetic tape stated it “can be played on any tape recorder,” not anticipating this medium would be replaced by digital recordings.
