KUSA - Members of a Denver church attempted to dig up a 100-year-old piece of history on Sunday, but came up empty handed instead.
"This church was erected in 1913, and what I think is remarkable is it was built for $6,884," said longtime church member Al Schroder.
After Sunday's service Schroder and other members of the 7th Avenue Congregational Church in Denver gathered to dig up a time capsule under the church's cornerstone.
"What we just uncovered here was a stone giving that name and that date we thought there might be something as far as content underneath the stone, " Schroder said.
They kept digging and digging, but found nothing.
"There was indications by people of many years ago that in a time capsule there were the names of all the church members etc. of that particular time and perhaps something else," Schroder said.
While it was disappointing to come up empty-handed, church members say they're still happy to be celebrating 100 years.
