Time Capsule Provides Glimpse of History at St. Vincent in Little Rock


The recent demolition of a building that once served as the maternity annex for St. Vincent Infirmary revealed a time capsule inside a cornerstone marked with the year of construction, 1938. The capsule was opened during a public ceremony, revealing statuettes, photographs, prayer cards and other artifacts. The contents of the time capsule are on display in St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center’s Heritage Hall. For more information, contact Shawn Smith, communications coordinator for St. Vincent, at 501/552-3871.
