Over 800 Letters in Portsmouth Time Capsule
January 4, 2024

According to the Seacoast Current, over 800 letters are included in a time capsule to be opened in 2123 when the city celebrates its 500th anniversary.

The last official act of the Portsmouth NH 400 committee was to fill the bright red capsule with messages and other items representative of the city in 2023.

It was sealed up during a ceremony in Market Square near the holiday tree on New Year’s Eve.

Former Portsmouth Mayor Bob Lister and former NH State Representative and Assistant Mayor Jim Splaine headed up the project and put the call out for letters.
