World's Largest Time Capsule

World's Largest Time Capsule

A collection of two buried time capsules create the World's Largest Time Capsule, set in Seward, a sleepy town in eastern Nebraska.

Harold Keith Davisson buried the first time capsule on July 4th in 1975 – containing more than 5,000 items including a new Chevy Vega. This 45-ton vault is scheduled to open on Independence Day 2025.

In 1977, the Guinness Book of World Records solidified the vault as the world’s largest. After some debate with a competing time capsule, Davisson buried a second capsule in 1983.

The time capsule can be found by first visiting the House of Davisson Furniture. It's a short drive from downtown Lincoln.
