Lehigh Valley Live: Bethlehem is making a time capsule. Here’s what should be in it.

April 30th, 2018 |

Bethlehem just celebrated a big birthday — its 275th — and Historic Bethlehem Museum & Sites is building a community time capsule to be opened in 2068.

Historic Bethlehem is about launch a new interactive exhibit celebrating and preserving the city’s last 275 years, which will culminate with the burial of the time capsule.

Time Capsule Bethlehem: Our City Then and Now opens Thursday, March 29, with a 6 to 9 p.m. opening reception at the Kemerer Museum.

But submissions for the 2018 community time capsule are being accepted starting Saturday.
