DENMARK, Iowa (AP) - Residents in the small southeast Iowa community of Denmark are planning to open two time capsules, one of which has been closed for nearly 90 years.

That capsule was buried in the corner of a local school that was destroyed after it closed several years ago. The second capsule was buried near a jungle gym by a fourth-grade class about 17 years ago.

The Fort Madison Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/UcXMPq ) the capsules are scheduled to be opened Sunday. Resident Gayla Young says she acquired the older capsule by asking workers at the site of the former building to look for it. She has since kept it in a safe.

The older capsule is in a brass box that was soldered shut. Young and others say they’re curious about what’s inside.
