On Veteran’s Day, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018, the City of Golden and Golden History Museum & Park will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I with a day of celebration, programs, and free admission. The Museum opens at 10 a.m. and ceremonies begin at 11 a.m.
The 1968 time capsule that has been buried in the sidewalk next to Golden’s Liberty Bell in front of City Hall for the past 50 years will be opened and its contents unveiled for the public to see at the Golden History Museum, 923 10th St.
The time capsule tradition began in 1918 when Golden residents buried the first one in honor of the end of WWI and asked that the people of 1968 open it. The next generation dutifully opened the capsule and buried another for us to celebrate and experience in 2018. In the same tradition, we will bury a time capsule with items representing our times for the people of 2068 to open.
