Historian searches for time capsule
A Madison historian is in search of a local time capsule that's supposed to be opened in 2019.
On the front page of the Oct. 22, 1969, edition of the Madison County Record, an article stated that a time capsule, containing numerous items typifying the way-of-life in 1969 in Madison, was to be put in place at 4:15 p.m. that day.
Madison historian and resident Percy Keel said he would like to know where the time capsule is located n not so that it can be opened now, but to make sure it's kept in place for the next 16 years and can be opened as anticipated more than 30 years ago.
Keel said the time capsule was to be opened 50 years from the time it was buried. The ceremony surrounding the burying of the time capsule was part of Madison's 100-year celebration, which ended on Oct. 22, 1969.
