LITCHFIELD -- When Meeker County began building a new hospital in 1951 in Litchfield, organizers tucked away some of the community pride and excitement in a steel container that has been sealed up for 58 years.

On Friday, the time capsule of the Meeker Memorial Hospital will be opened and its contents put on display. "What's in it? Lord knows," said Dave Gabrielson, chairman of the hospital board.
