 Here's a small section of old map compared with a recent satellite image.  It looks like in 1912 there was a building next to a pond in what is now a vacant field.  The field is now reported to be caught up in lawsuit between a bank and a developer; it was slated to be condominiums until the recession hit.  It's been untouched for years.  Sounds like a good place to go detecting to me.


  1. Cannot figure out where this is from the picture. What road is the pond and house on? Intersecting road?

  2. Mark, I think we were checking in the wrong place. I think the pond was close to the road where the ditch was, by the car, and the house lot had been paved over.

  3. I really don't think so. I think the triangular area of trees was the pond, and the squarish area next to it where I started looking first was the house location. I could be wrong, though!


I'm eager to hear your thoughts!
