PHOTOS: Wadsworth bicentennial celebration includes 50-year-old time capsule

The crowd gathers around a horse-drawn hearse carrying the 1964 time capsule from Woodlawn Cemetery, where it was buried 50 years ago, to Wadsworth during the First Night kickoff Saturday of the city’s year-long bicentennial celebration. The time capsule will be opened in August. The photo was taken by Downtown Wadsworth Inc.’s photographer Tom Stugmyer from the roof of the FirstMerit Bank building. Dan Rospert, of Hilliard-Rospert Funeral Home, arranged the horse-drawn carriage. The next event in the bicentennial celebration is the historical speaker series April 12, when Kim Carlson discusses “Wadsworth Families Based on the Work of Traveling Artist Ferdinand Brader” at 10 a.m. at Wadsworth City Hall’s council chambers.
