Key West 200th Celebration Time Capsule

The Key West 200th Time Capsule will be put under the American flag at Mallory Square for all to see on a daily basis on March 25th 2022 to celebrate the founding and raising of the American flag and the start of Key West and the United States.

Specific items will be put in the time capsule that represent Key West and the Florida Keys now and from our past. This will be opened in 2072 for the 250th Celebration and then resealed until the 300th.

Artist and Sculptor Craig Gray  has been carving stone for the past 25 years and you have seen all of his stone benches on white street pier and many art pieces in Key West and all over the country.

Carve your name in history. We are offering different levels of participation to have your name , family name or saying carved in stone for all to see for the next 50 to hundred years. Talk about being a part of history. The 200th only comes around once and your carving will be one of the keepers of the time capsule which will be photographed for the next 50 + years! Who will come to represent you when its opened in 2072 to see what was left behind?

All money collected will be used for the creation of the time capsule and a drone fireworks show for families, friends and pets to enjoy, yes pets. The drones create no harm to the environment and are silent so they don’t disturb the wildlife or pets. Any money left over will be donated to a local children’s charity. All donations are tax deductible!
