Welcome to the lovely "town square" area of Matthews, surrounded by the Town Hall, library and Matthews Welcome Center/Museum.  Unnoticed by most visitors is a small plaque at ground level at the posted coordinates.  This time capsule was buried in 2004 to mark the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Town of Matthews.

To log this cache, enter the year that the capsule is to be opened in the password section of your log.

Found this while attending WWFM XIII just a few feet away.  Don't think I'll be there for the opening of the Time Capsule.

This was a nice virtual cache to have found while attending the Flash Mob  WWFM XIII very near by.

I was in the area finding several caches and this virtual popped up on my radar so I wandered over to make the find. Not as easy as I thought it would be!! After walking around the GZ area (and then walking to another virtaul cache nearby), I ended up asking a man eating lunch at a nearby bench if he knew where the time capsule was located. He did know, but it still took us a minute or two to locate it! Thanks for another cool virtual in Matthews.

1 31 August 2014 DudleyGrunt Found it

Was down from Maryland with sfcchaz for a (mostly) alt-caching run thru Charlotte.  This was day two, after a surprisingly well attended 0630 (AKA o'dark thirty) event at Krispy Kreme (maybe that explains it).

Was glad to log the nearby GS puzzle after reading the warning on the cache page and deciding to look around.

We had a great time and definitely plan to make a return trip some time.

I think I know why it goes unnoticed.  It took an unusual amount of time to find it and we were looking for it!  I guessed over. 

Thanks and Happy Trails!
