BOELING GREEN, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - Members of the Bowling Green community opened a time capsule Monday that is believed to be 99 years old.
Bowling Green Middle School hosted a ceremony at 9:30 a.m. Members of the BG Board of Education, the BG Mayor, and all fourth-grade students were present.
During the demolition of the former Central Administration building located at 140 S. Grove St., a time capsule was discovered. Apparently the person who was operating the demolition equipment was at the point of demolishing the cornerstone when he noticed a box. He stopped and retrieved it.
While the box is small, approximately 12"x8"x4", it has an inscription that indicates the box had been placed there in 1913.
After they sang a song, and spoke about what they thought was going to be inside, the box was finally opened. Mayor Richard Edwards spoke about each item as he removed it from the box.
The highlights were photographs, newspapers, and a yearbook from the year the box was buried.
Those young and old shared their excitement afterward, some of which were spot-on with their predictions guessing newspaper articles and money.
