On Saturday, May 1, 1971, during the Todd County Sesquicentennial Celebration, a time capsule was buried at the Historic Courthouse grounds. Directions were to open and reveal the contents of the time capsule on May 1, 2021.
Because of COVID-19 and CDC guidelines, the special occasion of opening the time capsule will be shown live online on Facebook on Saturday, May 1, 2021. Time for the event to be live streamed will be at 7:00 PM with the actual ‘opening’ of the capsule to be at 5:00 PM.
The Facebook Live event will be shown through the Todd County Fiscal Court’s Facebook Page.
Current plans are for the contents to be placed at the Welcome Center for public viewing from Saturday, May 8th, 2021 until Saturday, July 3rd, 2021. During that time period, personal items will also be returned to designated individuals.
