ChairSusan Horton

What’s your favorite little-known fact about downtown?

There is a time capsule on Wall Street under the sidewalk next to the Wheatland Bank Financial Center building that was buried there by the Hamblen Elementary School's Second Grade Classes in  May 1978 to be opened by Spokane students in 2078.  The bronze plaque above it also states "We bring you messages of peace, friendship and love.  May you always understand one another."
