Quote:The box was found when workers moved a monument dedicated to Chico's founders, John and Annie Bidwell, to build a sidewalk around it.
Archaeologists and historians looked through records and newspaper clippings dating back to 1925, and they show no record of this time capsule being set outside Bidwell Mansion.

“I've never seen or heard anything like this in my career; finding a time capsule that wasn't known about,” said Wright.
The box is welded around the edges, leaving everyone to use their imagination to guess what's inside.

I'm curious as to what could be inside the box.
