Former Tinley School 1953 Time Capsule Contents Revealed

The time capsule was sealed into the cornerstone of Tinley School on the corner of Avenue G and N. 8th Street in Council Bluffs in 1953. Now, the contents have been revealed! Thanks to the Council Bluffs Public Library and the CB Alumni & Friends Network, many of the items are now on temporary display on the main floor for all to see. History buffs, alumni and former staff at the building may also want to watch the video when the time capsule was opened to reveal the contents.  Among the items are student drawings, photos, newspaper articles and other school and school district memorabilia students and staff chose to secure in the capsule.
