In honor of the Capitol Centennial Celebration, the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet is compiling a Virtual Time Capsule. The capsule will provide future generations of Kentuckians information about the state capitol and its importance to the Commonwealth throughout history. The Virtual Time Capsule will include photos, videos, and oral recollections of capitol events and activities as well as brief biographies of individuals who visited, worked or served in an official capacity there. Capitol activities throughout 2010 will be included. On December 31, 2010, the Virtual Time Capsule will be downloaded and archived by the Kentucky Historical Society and the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives. Its contents will be made available to the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky on June 5, 2110.
The Virtual Time Capsule will be a part of the new capitol.ky.gov website. The time capsule’s launch is planned for June 5, 2010. It will be updated throughout the year and will remain on the website until December 31, 2010.
A bronze plaque “marking” the location of the Virtual Time Capsule will be unveiled at the Centennial Celebration on June 5. The plaque will be placed in the Capitol.
