The Boone County Historical Society’s monthly heritage program will focus on the contents of the time capsules and other items from Bryant and Lowell Schools now in the society’s collection. The program will begin at 7 pm August 24 at the Boone County Historical Center at 602 Story Street.
Charles W. Irwin, Executive Director of the Historical Society, will discuss the artifacts recovered from the two schools. A brief PowerPoint program on the history of the two schools, prepared by the Society’s edit Suzanne Caswell, will precede Irwin’s discussion.
“In 1939, when the cornerstones of Bryant and Lowell Schools were laid, time capsules containing photographs, newspaper and other relevant items were placed within them. In 1990, the time capsules were opened in honor of the schools’ 50th anniversaries, and additional items w3ere placed within them before they were resealed and put back into the cornerstones,” Irwin explained.
