Be a part of history!
A lot of great things happened in 2013 in Jackson County. We’re looking for the most meaningful, most memorable event you can remember.
If selected, your idea will be included in a time capsule that is to be opened in September of 2093.
During the renovations of the Historic Jackson County Truman Courthouse, we uncovered a lot of history. We found items hidden in walls and even original moldings that had been covered since 1933.
We thought it would be fun to leave some treasures and chronicle some high points from 2013 to be found by the citizens of Jackson County 80 years from now.
