My dad knew about that rock as he used to play around on that hill as a child. He said he also found a tombstone or two up there. I'm sure that will get blasted as well.

I like how the historian said "oh it's only from the 20th century, junk it". Not like people would like to see it in 2112 would they?

I was thinking the same thing. That box they found in the cornerstone of the old school building entered my mind. And we wonder why we can't get this place going.

The copper box used as a time capsule from the 1900's-30's or so. They found it in the cornerstone of the school building they were tearing down. We were driving by when I said there is no telling what they could find and the next day or so that hit the paper. It had some info, trinkets, a few publications at the time all put in there by staff and students. I don't know about anyone else, but it gave me a boner.
