In the meantime, the Concord Historical Society wants to hear your guesses at what’s in the 1965 time capsule, and suggestions for what should be included in the 2015 time capsule to be buried on November 7. Stop by Merrimack County Savings Bank at 89 North Main St. to fill out a suggestion form, or email ideas to by May 15.

The mission of the Concord Historical Society’s Time Capsule Committee is to unearth the 1965 time capsule sited at City Plaza, Downtown Concord (completed June 6, 2014), oversee the opening and related festivities of the 1965 time capsule on June 7, 2015, and to research and select content to be placed in the 2015 time capsule slated for burial on November 7, 2015.
