LANSING, Mich. – It’s been almost 100 years since the Eckert Power Station was first built, but not everyone knows that there’s a time capsule buried at this location. On Friday we have to see what’s inside it.
“There were factory blue prints, there were silver dollars, business cards, copies of the city charter, the factory’s financial statements, there was a lot of history in it,” said Eckert Power General Manager Eckert Power. Station Dick Peffley said.
Before changing its name to Eckert, the factory was originally called The Moores Park Station. The time capsule was buried in 1922 when construction on the factory first began. Construction was completed in 1924.
“It’s a big start for our community here,” says Peffley. “This factory was built to appeal to the auto industry. BWL faced us so they could get a reliable source of power. And 100 years ago the factory was here and now there are new factories built in our area because of it. “
More than 50 objects have been carefully removed from their covers, and we will soon announce that they are available for public viewing.
“We’re really thinking of taking some of these items and objects and putting them in a time capsule and fitting them into our new Delta Energy Park Factory, and in 100 years, they’ll be there. will probably still be there and you can go back and look at that,” said Peffley.
