The time capsule for Stevens County's new courthouse was set Monday morning.

County Commissioners and the staff and volunteers from the county History Museum watched the 70-pound stainless steel capsule set in an interior wall in the entry of the courthouse building.

The capsule contains many items and records reflecting present-day life in the county, as well as the contents of a time capsule from the 1956 courthouse building that was opened this summer.

The new capsule is expected to be opened in 50 years.
