SAVORING WOOD COUNTY’S PRESENT FOR THE FUTURE – Historical Society Places Time Capsule to be Opened in 2075
On Saturday, November 5, 2016, at 1:00 PM, the public is welcome to witness history in the making as the Wood County Historical Society dedicates and places a time capsule into the structure of the museum, not to be opened until 2075 when the Museum celebrates its 100-year anniversary.
This past year, the Wood County Historical Society sought iconic items from local residents and agencies for a well-rounded representation of present-day Wood County.
The dedication will include remarks from Wood County Commissioner Doris Herringshaw speaking about some of the items donated from the County; Michael Penrod, Director of the Wood County District Public Library speaking about the Library’s recognition of reading technology, Museum Director Dana Nemeth and Museum Curator Holly Hartlerode, and comments from guests and contributors.
The Museum is located at 13660 County Home Road in Bowling Green, about a quarter-mile east of I-75 and Rt. 6 (exit 179). The Museum will be open that day for self-guided tours from 1:00-4:00 PM.
