It only took 220 years, but a time capsule buried by American patriot Paul Revere, Founding Father Samuel Adams and Colonel William Scollay in 1795 has been opened.
Although the box was found Dec. 11 in a cornerstone of the Massachusetts State House, it was just revealed to the public Tuesday and opened at the Museum of Fine Arts. And there was one very important member of the Revere family there to see it, too, Paul Revere IV. (Video via WHDH)
"I mean, we're a pretty forward looking city, but we get to remember our old stuff," Paul Revere IV says.
