To celebrate Greeley's 150th anniversary, they'll be opening two time capsules that have been sealed for over 50 years.

Opening a time capsule always sounds like fun: 'What did they put in there?' you hear in the back of your mind. Curiosity and history come together with time capsules.

Greeley will be opening both on October 22, 2020. Because of COVID-19, like a lot of things as of late, the event will be held online.

In 1967, the first time capsule was buried where the DoubleTree Hotel now stands;  the Greeley Museums have kept that capsule safe since 2015 when the hotel came in.

In 1970, the second time capsule was buried in Lincoln Park to commemorate 100 years since Greeley's founding.

On October 22, at Noon, as part of Greeley's History Brown Bag Series, the Greeley Historic Preservation Commission and the City of Greeley Museums will unveil items from both capsules live via a streaming webinar.

Those interested should register for the webinar here.

What have 1967 and 1970 sent us? What do they want us to know about their times in Greeley and the Union Colony area back then?

If you can't make the webinar on the 22nd, they'll have it on the City of Greeley's YouTube channel.
