Highland Park residents love their city and its history.

They packed the City Hall Chambers March 11, the day the city was chartered by the State of Illinois. There was standing room only.

They came to celebrate not only its anniversary but to see what items were inside the 1969 time capsule, the year Highland Park observed its centennial.

Mayor Nancy Rotering did the honors of opening the contents of the time capsule for the public to see.
