Time Capsule Vault – 2012

1

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Richmond County Historical Society in a meaningful way, a time vault was constructed near Melbourne Township Town Hall. This concrete underground structure was built to hold up to 150 individual time capsules.
These time capsules will remain in the vault for 50 years, to be opened in 2062 when the Society celebrates its 100th anniversary.
Located directly above the vault, is our Time Vault Tree. This beautifully crafted tree was made by . Approximately 30 old place names in Richmond County and vicinity are stamped on the leaves of this tree which served as the inspiration our new RCHS-SHCR logo.
