City of Lubbock hosts Centennial Time Capsule event

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A final celebration of Lubbock's first 100 years will be held Friday, September 25th at 10:00 a.m.

The event, hosted by the City of Lubbock, will be in the Fine Arts Gallery of the Buddy Holly Center. The event will feature a display of city-related items to be stored in a time capsule.

The centennial time capsule is intended to be stored within the Buddy Holly Center for the next 100 years, and will be covered with a plaque stating the time capsule is to be opened during the City's bicentennial anniversary in 2109.

September 25 is a prominent date in Lubbock's history, because on that date in 1909, the first work train of Lubbock's first railway connection, the Plainview-to-Lubbock branch of the Santa Fe Railroad, entered Lubbock. Later that week, freight service was established, and in October the line was fully opened for passenger service.
