The Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation dedicated its new Central Middle School in downtown Columbus Thursday evening.
The capsule was buried on November 10, 1922. It contained three newspapers and a telephone directory with three-digit numbers, among other items.

The renovations to the 50-year-old high school will cost around $60 million and will begin as soon as 2008.
