The Louisiana Masonic Order on Saturday afternoon sealed a time capsule in the cornerstone of the Beauregard Parish Courthouse, now under renovation and expansion.

Cornerstone laying is a time-honored practice of the Masons. A capsule place in the previous cornerstone in the early 20th Century was opened in May of this year.

The cannister placed Saturday included a variety of coins of the realm, Masonic documents, lists of various public officials, a DeRidder Daily News and other materials that will give citizens in some future time a glimpse of life as it was in Beauregard Parish, 2016.
