Finally got permission (old stone house)
 
3 Attachment(s)
I found this site about 3 years ago. Finally got permission to detect it. House has no roads to it and is 1/2 mile from any road. Went out for a scouting trip and found that it also sits right on a now non existent railroad. The pictures with the timber and creek shows the old railroad bridges. There are 2 old railroad bridges on this site. I'm hoping to start hunting it hard this weekend. Did a small exploratory hunt, the site is infested with iron so it may be hard hunting at first, but i'm hoping it's hiding some keepers!

Great looking site. That house structure would be a dream find for a photographer, using seasonal lighting in the Fall.

Amazing that those old structures can stand without a roof. Should be a great location for coins and relics. GL & HH.

Any historical date info on that house. I did notice the chimney has a ceramic liner, they were a code requirement around 1927 or so.
FWIW.

That looks awesome, even if you don't hit some coins there's bound to be some pretty cool relics.

Me and pastor bob along with another guy hit it last weekend for the first time...lots and lots of iron. Unfortunately no great finds. Did find some buttons from early 1900s and I found and old pipe wrench...thinking this site will take some time to weed through all the trash to get to the good targets

Looks like there was some fresh digging over there?
