In 1931 a kind of time capsule was found in a bottle hidden in a stone wall beside the Allsaw school by Everett Blair's children, Ruby (now Mrs. Trevor Cooper) and Joe Blair. It contained 16¢ in old coins and a faded hand written document. Dated the Allsaw school,, Minden, September 5, 1885, it reads as follows: "I want the man to know that may find this in after years that this bottle was laid here by John Gittens, mason; John Dauncey, trustee; John Bateson, farmer; John Duncan, teamster; G. Hope, contractor and William Archer. God Save the Queen." Source: In Quest of Yesterday by Nila Reynolds. pg. 281.
