New Independence high school to bury time capsule

Posted: Updated:

The new Independence Junior Senior High School will bury a time capsule the morning of Wednesday, November 11th.

The school will include in the capsule an 80-page edition of the Independence Bulletin Journal that celebrated the newspaper's 150th anniversary, complete with photos and ads from 120 businesses, and stories from earlier issues.

Earlier this Fall, a time capsule not known to be in existence was discovered on the school's grounds as the old high school was being demolished.

That capsule contained articles from the Independence Bulletin Journal concerning construction of the old high school in the 1950s. 

The new school plans to soon display those news articles and other items from the old time capsule.
