ASHLAND, Ore. — Ashland residents of today are making a time capsule for the Ashland residents of tomorrow.

The time capsule is intended to paint a picture of 2013 life for people who will live a hundred years from now. The city of Ashland created a time capsule to be buried under the Ashland Plaza. It’s being filled with items representing the year 2013 and Ashland.

Dozens of residents have already dropped off items to go into the time capsule. They include everything from an Oregon Shakespeare Festival playbill, to a restaurant menu, to technology.

“Some of the pieces, of course are technology, which we think is cutting edge, but 100 years from now they might think of us, and think, ‘how did these people ever manage’,” said Ann Seltzer, of the City of Ashland.

The city of Ashland will accept items for the capsule up until mid March when it is buried; just drop your item off at the city’s community development building on Winburn Way.
