Bluefield's American Revolution Bicentennial Time Capsule was dedicated July 4, 1976, with respect for the past and faith in the future to be opened July 4, 2076. The Bluefield Civitan Club at the time created the time capsule as a project to celebrate America's Bicentennial. The club dissolved in 2015, and the time capsule and the marble marker were removed from their original location in front of the Greater Bluefield Chamber of Commerce to 415 Federal Street in 2016-2017. The marble was shipped from the Pentelicon Quarry in Athens, Greece. Local Greek Americans, through AHEPA, purchased the marble and presented it to the city of Bluefield. It offers a precious link between our two countries in celebrating the democratic ideals that our forefathers established in the building of this great great nation.
