Charleston, South Carolina (WCBD) – Crew members say they found what appears to be a time capsule inside the base of the John Calhorn Memorial during the dismantling.

Historical documents have led authorities to believe that time capsules are inside structures, according to Jason Cronsburg, director of parks in Charleston.

“The document says it’s in the northwest corner of the base of the monument,” he said on January 21st about the time capsule.

The only mention of this item came from a newspaper article in News and Courier, then called in 1934.

No other records were found mentioning the capsules placed on the monument.

The dismantling of the base is expected to continue from mid-February to late February.

This story is developing. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
