Time Capsules in America The Boston Grasshopper

About the history of the Boston grasshopper time capsule discovered in the 1950s.



In the early 1950s, repairmen atop Boston's Faneuil Hall discovered a metal box inside the 4-ft.-long copper grasshopper that perches on top. The box contained newspapers, a few notes, and cards from city officials. The items had been placed there in 1889, when the grasshopper was last repaired.
