Final search for buried time capsule in Niles

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio - A final effort was underway on Monday to try and locate a time capsule that was buried nearly half a century ago.

Volunteer searchers with metal detectors were scanning the land in front of the old Niles-McKinley High School. They were hoping to find a time capsule buried by the class of 1964.

Members of the class also were on hand, comparing memories about exactly where the capsule was buried.

"Getting all kinds of different opinions now after 49 years, everybody says it's in a different location. We can remember doing it, but I think the location is the biggest conflict," says Joe Rossi, class of 1964.

If this search is unsuccessful the capsule will probably be lost to history because work at the site of the old demolished school has to move on.
