|c1865-66||Bellarine: Methodist Church, Church Road
A copy of the Geelong Advertiser and several other items were placed inside a sealed bottle. It is possible that this may have been done at a later stage [1960s] when the church was renovated however from memory the Geelong Advertiser was much older and probably connected with the first date.
In 2002 the church and hall were sold with the hall becoming a cafe. During major restoration work in the church the bottle with its contents was discovered.
