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 Courthouse
during its demolition. In it they found letters and newspapers from variouscities along with photographs, a newspaper microfilm reel, and area event brochures.


Big shout out to the
Johnson County Museum for getting us a sneak peek of the De Soto items! Whilethe City of De Soto letter will be opened with the other letters (after paper
conservators can inspect their condition), the newspaper here is jam packed.
