SUGAR HILL, N.H. (AP) Members of a New Hampshire chapel say they discovered a time capsule from 1893 in the church's foundation.
The Caledonian-Record reports a metal box was discovered chiseled into the cornerstone of St. Matthew's Chapel in Sugar Hill on Monday.
The chapel is being temporarily relocated a few dozen feet away so its foundation can be stabilized. The team tasked with moving the building found the box.
Inside the box, chapel members found a newspaper clipping from August 1893, when the church was built, as well as five coins and a prayer book or small Bible.
Church member Betsy Holcombe says they plan to take the book to a book conservator to see if it can be salvaged.
