I Have Some Information

There is a marker at that point but i do not think it is a time capsule. The time capsule in granger, iowa is actually located in front of granger city hall and fire department. This capsule sits inside of brick and was placed in 1985 by my father john snider who layed the brick for the capsule. It was placed during the granger days celebration there is video of the capsule being place at the granger library.

Maintenance Issues
  1. Is this marker part of a series?
  2. Who or what organization placed the marker?
  3. This marker could use another picture or two.
