This is the area between the City Hall building, and the Sierra Madre Fire and Police Facility. In the foreground of the photo is a plaque, reading "Historical Society Time Capsule 1976."
The historical time capsule was buried beneath the flag pole on March 19, 1976, and several items were placed inside a sturdy metal box. These items included the following: special copies of the local newspapers; lists of city officers, boards and employees; information on our Search and Rescue Team, trails and the Wistaria Vine; a telephone directory from 1976, and varied brochures of city activities.
The historical documents were chosen and placed in the box by the Bi-Centennial Committe, the City of Sierra Madre, and the Sierra Madre Historical Society.
