SLAYTON -- As it turns out, the rumors of a time capsule buried at the Murray County Memorial Hospital about 60 years ago are true.

Construction workers at the Murray County Medical Center expansion project in Slayton broke open a concrete block that was at the base of the old flag pole Monday and found a copper box that had been buried during a dedication ceremony in 1951. Until more research is done, the exact date of the burial will remain a mystery.
