Contents of time capsule from 1910 to be revealed at Cleveland Elementary 

A snap shot of what life was like in 1910 will be revealed to students at Cleveland Elementary School this Wednesday.

The school, located at 455 Athens St. in the Excelsior neighborhood, was built in 1910 and as part of the opening celebration a time capsule was buried at the building’s cornerstone.

The copper box has been retrieved and as part of the 100th anniversary of the school, the box will be sawed open and its contents revealed.

Cleveland volunteer John Weidinger, who graduated from the elementary school in 1953, learned of the time capsule’s existence, helped orchestrate its extraction, and will preside over the opening, according to school district officials.

The opening will take place 10:30 a.m. at the elementary school.
