You are invited to suggest an artifact to be placed in the time capsule.

Can you think of a small item that represents a facet of life in Thomasville?

Perhaps it represents your business, your church, your school, or some other part of life in Thomasville and Thomas County.


We want to share it with the Thomasville of the future!

Use the form below to tell us what you would like to place in the time capsule. 

Please do not drop off or mail artifacts to the chamber!

Since space is limited in the time capsule, the Time Capsule Committee will review the suggestions and reach out to those chosen for submission into the time capsule.


Some things to consider:

The smaller the artifact, the more likely it is chosen for submission into the time capsule. Please only suggest artifacts that can fit in your hand.

Organic materials (wood, leather, feathers, plants, food, etc.) will deteriorate over time and cannot be submitted into the time capsule.

Unstable metals like copper and brass will corrode over time and cannot be submitted into the time capsule.

All artifacts submitted to the chamber for placement in the time capsule become the property of the Thomasville-Thomas County Chamber of Commerce. Do not submit any item that you wish to be returned. 

Artifacts collected by the chamber are not guaranteed to be placed in the time capsule. The Time Capsule committee will select the artifacts that are most conducive to size constraints and best representative of Thomasville and Thomas County 

We look forward to hearing your suggestions!



Please provide your contact information below.
We will use this information to contact you if your suggestion is chosen for submission by the Time Capsule Committee.
