Crews renovating the old Hallmark Building in downtown Sheridan found a space on the building's northeast corner where a time capsule was originally supposed to be.

Erin Butler, executive director of the WYO Theater, said the space is now empty, but there are plans for a new time capsule to go in that space.

Butler said the Hallmark Building was finished in 1903, and after the Masons went through a number of different occupants over the years. The most recent occupant was the Hallmark store which was in Sheridan for several years. Butler said there also were studio spaces for artists, and the third floor was at one time a dance studio occupied by Miss Sandy's Dance Academy.

When renovations are completed, the old building will expand the WYO Theater's lobby and become the site of a new box office on the first floor, while the second floor will house offices for WYO Theater personnel and classrooms for Sheridan College. The third floor will be a grand ballroom-style event stage and rehearsal area.
