After reflecting on all the wonderful things that being an American is over the 4th of July holiday, one Michigan town gets a closer look at their past.

In Kingston, Michigan (town of 440 people) they discovered a gift that will forever mark their town as something special!

Well, tearing down an old elementary school that was built in 1930, workers discovered a time capsule that was left in the corner stone of the building!

According to the Detroit Free Press reported that...

The Kingston school district in Michigan’s Thumb region says the box is made of copper or brass. It has no clasp, but was taped shut in the cavity of the cornerstone.

What is in it?!?! Well, just like the citizens of Kingston we will all have to wait to find out.

Officials said on Facebook that the box will be opened on Aug. 24 during Kingston Days, an annual community event. A picnic starts at 6 p.m.

It is unknown who contributed to the capsule, so anyone who was a student of the school district back in 1930 are encouraged to  attend the opening of the capsule and tell their story!

I can't wait to see what is inside!
