See Masons time capsule contents at library

In 1956, a time capsule was sealed at the Masonic Lodge in Raymond. This metal box was opened at a meeting of Occident Lodge No. 48, Free and Accepted Masons of Washington, in Ilwaco September. It contained pictures and newspaper stories about the building of the Raymond lodge hall, as well as directories listing all the men in North Pacific County who were members. It also contained one cent from that year. The contents, and  other information about the Masons, are on display at the Ilwaco Timberland Library through December. The display will move to the Raymond library in early 2017.
