Is it just us, or is finding a time capsule on
everybody's dream list? It’s even more exciting when a piece of yourhistory is included!
A time capsule from
1951 was recently discovered in a wall cavity of the Johnson County Courthouseduring its demolition. In it they found letters and newspapers from various
cities along with photographs, a newspaper microfilm reel, and area event brochures.
Big shout out to theJohnson County Museum for getting us a sneak peek of the De Soto items! While
the City of De Soto letter will be opened with the other letters (after paperconservators can inspect their condition), the newspaper here is jam packed.
