“Celebrating 100 Years of Pride, Tradition, & Excellence
An accidental discovery revealed a buried treasure in the front lawn of the Woodstown High School -- a 1976 bicentennial time capsule containing history from over the years.
The unexpected capsule was dug up when the district replaced the high school's front sign. When the sign was replaced, workers accidentally struck the sealed keg, which will now be put on display in early April.
"We didn't know what it was -- we came upon it by mistake. We thought it'd be unique to repack it and bury it again for 2076," Doug Hathaway, with the Woodstown-Pilesgrove school district and historical society, said Monday afternoon.
Surrounded by various articles, trinkets, and memorabilia from the Woodstown High School Class of '76, Hathaway and principal, Dr. Scott Hoopes, carefully separated the priceless items.
A great ceremony was held -- Yankee Doodle Day -- and the capsule was buried only to be found years later.
The WHS School Store services primarily Woodstown High School, but we also provide services for the Woodstown community members, alumni, and students elementary and middle schools. Though the store has been up and running for many years, Mrs. Lynch and the students design all of the items in conjunction with a local graphic designer, so everything is original! We are very proud to announce that a new store has been built for us, and is now entitled, the Wolverine Den. This will allow us to vastly expand inventory to service our students, staff, and community better...We can customize designs for your Woodstown based team or business by request.
