122-year-old Bible found in Aberdeen time capsule

Posted: Updated:

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Officials who opened a church time capsule in Aberdeen found old books including an 1890 Norwegian Bible.

The time capsule was put in the cornerstone of the old Bethlehem Lutheran Church in 1955. It was removed this week because the building is being demolished this month to make way for a new public library.

The Bible belonged to a man named Knute Carlson. His great-great-niece, Wendy Meyers, says his descendants in Norway will enjoy seeing the Bible.
