Put Your Mark on History, Work on a Time Capsule at ECLP, Dec. 17

December 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$8

What would you put in a time capsule?

In 1875, when the Machen family was renovating after a fire, family members placed a time capsule into the walls of their farmhouse. In 1990, when Ellanor C. Lawrence Park was expanding what is now its visitor center, workers discovered the time capsule and got a glimpse into life in the 1800s. On Sunday, December 17, 2017 , join in a lively discussion about time capsules. Then, you can add to the park’s historical record by creating objects for a new time capsule. Inscribe your name in tin, create your own stamps and design your own money.

This program is designed for participants age six to adult. It runs from 1 to 2 p.m., and the cost is $8 per person.
