North Hills prepares to unearth time capsule

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- North Hills, in uptown Raleigh, is getting ready to unearth a buried treasure.

A time capsule was buried nearly 50 years ago in the sidewalk in front of the Old Cardinal Theater. A plaque marks the spot.

The capsule is still there, located between the Verizon store and Bonefish Grille.

Students at nearby schools and businesses contributed to the old container back in 1967, but the contents are unknown. North Hills plans to open it on June 8, 2017.

They're still working on the details, but in the meantime, they need your help collecting old photos of the area.

If you have any memories or photos of the old North Hills to share, you can share them on this Facebook page.
