In 1960, Wilson County celebrated its 100th birthday with great fanfare. As the centennial year drew to a close, the county interred a time capsule under the Wilson County Courthouse lawn, not to see the light of day again for 50 years. Inside were placed mementos of the celebration, newspapers of the day, and letters from hopeful county residents and dignitaries to residents of the future.

Be a part of history and join current dignitaries, county officials, local Boy Scouts, the sesquicentennial committee, and other residents Saturday, Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. to noon on the courthouse lawn.
