Officials Discover Huey Long-Era Time-Capsule In State Capitol

Louisiana State Capitol Building

A time capsule buried in the walls of the Louisiana Capitol building is seeing the light of day for the first time in nine decades.

Officials say the box was found during research for the renovation of the 90-year-old landmark.

According to reports, the capsule was concealed in a copper box behind the cornerstone in the northwest corner of the building back in 1931 by former Governor Huey Long and architect Leon Weiss.

The Senate says the capsule will remain sealed for now until it is further analyzed.
