0618 mass time capsuleA Massachusetts time capsule dating from 1795 was returned Wednesday to the cornerstone of the State House with a set of 2015 U.S. mint coins and a silver plaque added to its contents for a future generation to discover.

The celebration included a procession of freemasons who marched up Beacon Hill as military units rang off a 19-gun salute. All of this was part of an effort to approximate the atmosphere on July 4, 1795 when the cornerstone was drawn by 15 white horses from Boston’s Old South Church.

On that day, then-Gov. Samuel Adams and Paul Revere, then grandmaster of the Grand Lodge of Masons, presided over the ceremony in which the time capsule was first deposited into the cornerstone.
