Time capsule buried in 1963 opened in Benton Harbor
BENTON HARBOR, Mich.—A time capsule that was buried in 1963 was opened on Wednesday by the Benton Harbor community.
The time capsule, which was buried at Lake Michigan College, was cracked open in front of an audience that included U.S. Congressman Fred Upton at the Benton Harbor Public Library.
“The suspicion was accurate that in fact there might be something there. And, with a little ingenuity, we opened it up. We found a pretty remarkable beginning to what is today Lake Michigan College and the MTECH center. The people and involvement in the community that really makes our community a better place,” Upton said.
Old newspapers, photographs and even a key to the city of Benton Harbor was found inside of the time capsule.
