As mystery and secrecy is part of the fun surrounding time capsules, Heise only disclosed a few items she could confirm were sealed in the capsule including a Frisbee, a few ranger badges and a map of each Greene County park.

About 30 items were placed in the capsule.
Despite Heise’s strong urge not to include technology, parks staff included a flash drive with photos. In case her hunch is correct and the future generation isn’t able to access the photos anymore, Heise included a hand-written letter to the people of 2119, telling them they can find the photos in the county archival collections — assuming it’s still a physical space 100 years from now.
In 2001, another time capsule was removed from the county court house, Heise said. One more time capsule is known to exist in the county, however, Heise said she could not reveal its whereabouts because they are in the process of trying to locate the box.
“None of us will be here, so it’s really bizarre to think of that,” Heise said. “It’s hard to think about what people will be like 100 years from now and what they’ll think of us looking at the items we put in there.”
