Search For The Past: The Hunt For The Elusive 1964 Time Capsule

Posted by on May 1, 2013

untitledIn Niles, Illinois, community residents, students and parents spent Monday evening at the old Niles Mckinley High School to search for a time capsule believed to be buried there in 1964. Instead of finding the capsule, people found coins, a lawn mower blade, screwdriver, a railroad spike and a steel bar. Articles like this are nice to see, especially because the community comes together with their metal detectors to look for answers to a mystery. Two members of the class of 1964, Joseph Rossi and Joseph Sankey said they remember when the capsule was buried. Sankey states, “I remember coming out the front door of the school and burying it directly to the right behind the statue. I thought the school may have had an old Hi Crier ( school newspaper) with a photo of this.” Class of 64′ members said the capsule was placed in a metal box near the statue and included items such as: football memorabilia, yearbook and school ribbons with school slogans. The members of the metal detecting club that came to assist in the search have helped many people find valuables and other items.

    Is there a website that makes it easy to follow blogs and podcasts? I don’t have an iPod, does that matter?.
