The Delray Beach Preservation Trust announced that it will donate a 100 Year Centennial Time Capsule (2011 to 2111) to the City of Delray Beach to celebrate the city’s recent Centennial and to provide future generations with a glimpse into what Delray Beach was like in 2011. The Centennial Time Capsule, is installed in the lobby of City Hall at 100 NW 1st Avenue.
- A DVD of the movie “Delray Then and Now,” which reviews and documents Delray’s history
- An architectural coloring book illustrated by notable Delray architects & designers
- A local area telephone phone book
- An iPod loaded with current music
- Current local newspapers that report on the events and happenings in Delray Beach
- Many other interesting items that will be considered artifacts when the time capsule is opened 100 years later
All the artifacts are sealed in a specially designed aluminum container that is filled with an inert (non-flammable and non-toxic) gas designed to hold back the effects of time for its 100-year life.
