1965 Sesquicentennial Time Capsule Contents--Did Your FamilyLeave Something For You?

In 1965 during the Sesquicentennial of Mt. Carmel festivities, people were encouraged to submit an envelope of items to go into a time capsule to be opened in 2015. Those items, rather than being buried, were placed in a safety deposit box and The Bank of Mt. Carmel. When the bank changed hands, the contents of that box were sent to the Wabash County Museum for safe keeping. As time went on the year to open the items passed unnoticed. Recently the box was found and inventoried. If someone in a family wants to claim the contents, or a photocopy of the contents. Please contact the Wabash County Museum at 618-262-8774 or and arrangements will be made. Some envelopes contain a letter to be delivered to someone in 2015 and others contain a photo or other memorabilia. Nothing of monetary value is in any of the envelopes but would be valuable to a family from parents or grandparents thinking of them 30 years ago. This is the list:
