    I live in Mt.Carmel && I’ve never heard or seen anything about that time capsule. But the Mine Fire now is still burning and still traveling over to Mt.Carmel. But its not as bad as it use to be so it will take about 50 ir some years to even get to Mt.Carmel.

    We went to the area very fascinating! But was very disappointed about all the trash broken beer bottles everywhere. How all the young kids tearing up the land with trucks and 4 wheelers. Disrepecting everything because they dont know how to relate to the history that was once there and is still there. You just have to look. What a great place to walk down the streets that once were homes. To us it was sad that people had to leave. Even walking on the old route 61 was interesting. I don’t mine graffiti all in good taste..but can’t you at least spell D*** or f*** in french or German? Over all it nice interesting but bring a map and do your history to enjoy it more.

      My family was originally from Centralia and did end up relocating too Wilberton 2 and Aristes my great uncle and his wife were married in the Church on the hill. It would be to speak with you and maybe connect about memoirs and local history
