COUNTY — Local residents have until Friday to take items to the Pickens County Museum of Art and History for consideration for placement in a new time capsule that will be buried at the Pickens County Courthouse.

Easley Mayor Larry Bagwell didn’t waste any time submitting items representing Easley for possible inclusion in the capsule. He took the items with him Nov. 15 to the kickoff event of the museum’s “150 Days of Pickens County History” campaign. During that event, Pickens County mayors opened and read letters from 1968-era mayors that were placed in centennial time capsule that was buried at the courthouse in 1968 and unearthed last month as part of the celebration of the county’s 150th anniversary.

“A lot of people think I ought to be put in a time capsule,” Bagwell said. “I’ve been around long enough.”

His items included two baseballs from the Big League Baseball World
