MURRIETA, CA – The City of Murrieta time capsule materials that were buried 25 years ago and unearthed at a July 12, 2016 ceremony honoring the City of Murrieta’s anniversary are now display in the Library’s Heritage Room.

The time capsule items, which include photographs of the City as it was 25 years ago, and essays by students predicting what life in Murrieta would be like in the year 2016, were encapsulated, buried and donated to the City by the Citizens for Cityhood, the organization that pushed for Murrieta cityhood. Other civic groups that added items were the Murrieta Garden Club, Murrieta Valley High School and the Murrieta Valley Town Hall Association. The Murrieta Valley Historical Society, formed in April 2016, sponsored the ceremonial, retrieval event.

The Murrieta Time Capsule Collection will be on display until September 1, 2016. Thereafter, the items will be stored in the Heritage Room and will be able to be viewed by appointment.
