Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary School recently unveiled a time capsule that was buried in front of the school by students in 1997.
On Wednesday, the time capsule was retrieved and its 25-year-old contents were revealed. According to Marion County Public Schools, the capsule was filled with cassette and VHS tapes, a wired computer mouse, pictures, and other miscellaneous items.
Unfortunately, most of the items were damaged due to water seepage.
The elementary school’s current student class filled a new time capsule, and Principal Houle led the ceremony as it was buried in front of the school.
The time capsule from the current student class will be unveiled in the year 2047.
