Attention history buffs: Staff at Green-Wood Cemetery have discovered a time capsule, which they believe dates back to 1954. Historian Jeff Richmond tells us that the box has been opened, and the contents are in the process of drying. We’ll keep you updated on what they find inside!

Any chance any of you have memories of what was going on in 1954, or any guesses as to what might be inside? (Sadly, I believe this pre-dates the knowledgable Ron Lopez.)

If we created a time capsule to bury in Green-Wood today, what would you put inside?
