What was life like in Tuscaloosa during the year 2019? That’s the question the Tuscaloosa Bicentennial Commission was trying to answer and we needed the community's help. A Time Capsule Committee was formed and the group wanted to have the community's input for ways to represent life in Tuscaloosa during this bicentennial year. Tuscaloosa residents could make suggestions for topics to be covered and were also asked for items that would represent the subjects. If someone wanted to add their suggestions to the committee’s list of ideas, they filled out a form on this page. They could also mail their suggestions to Tuscaloosa200, P.O. Box 3167, Tuscaloosa, AL 35403. Each serious suggestion was taken into consideration, but there was no guarantee that it will be included. Deadline for submissions was Monday, September 30, 2019. All items chosen to be included in the time capsule were hermetically sealed before the city’s 200th birthday celebration on December 13, 2019.
