BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) - Today, city officials unveiled a nearly hundred year old time capsule that was found last week accidentally by construction workers. Contents of the capsule included the first ever report for the city planning committee, a booklet entitled "The Hiker" that was a dedication for Spanish-American war veterans and newspapers that were dated May 29, 1920. All items were in viewing shape, but there was some water damage caused by a not completely enclosed copper capsule.

Workers stumbled upon the capsule while renovating the 500-block of Main street last week in efforts to make Main street more commuter friendly.
