Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The time capsule that was recently discovered under the statue of the Mayo brothers that was located in front of the Mayo Civic Center will be opened next week.

Rochester Mayor Ardell Brede has decided to see what is inside the container next Wednesday (Aug 5 ) in front of the Chateau Theater.

August 5th will also mark Rochester’s 157th birthday, the date the city was incorporated.
