The cornerstone at the base of the flag pole in front of Canyon Lake’s City Hall building holds a time capsule.
The city placed the time capsule in the cornerstone during a Masonic Cornerstone Laying Ceremony on April 1, 2000, 10 years after the city was incorporated.
“The idea was to have something for later on in life to educate the newer residents about the start of the city,” said Jack Wamsley, who served on Canyon Lake’s first city council and attended the Masonic Cornerstone Laying Ceremony.
Included in the time capsule is a “History of Canyon Lake” written by Canyon Lake pioneer Chuck Bishop, a tape of “Canyon Lake Then and Now” by Don and Elinor Martin, a list of the 2000 City Council members and city staff, photographs of City Hall, a penny, dime, nickel and new golden dollar minted in 2000, an advertisement for the original Canyon Lake subdivision, and the front page of the first copy of The Friday Flyer printed in the new millennium.
The time capsule is scheduled to be opened in 2100, 100 years after it was laid in the ground.
