Representatives from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Friday buried a time capsule containing documents, photos and maps from various agencies to celebrate the organization’s 150th anniversary.

“We basically asked everyone to contribute something that reflects their agency,” said Brenda Ling, spokeswoman for the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

She said the plan is to open the capsule in 25 years. Items include aerial maps of Wheatland from 1956 to 2009, submitted by the Farm Service Agency, and the 150th report of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, submitted by the Agency for Rural Development.
