Default Virgin ground!

I thought Iíd never be able to find a colonial site that no ones ever been to, but that changed when I decided to check a spot Iíve been looking at for about a month. Off a construction site for a new development and up a 4ft wide rd I followed to 5 foundations lined with rock walls. So overgrown with ferns and vegetation, I was limited to the cart path and found these items. There are a few other sites that are off of this old rd with about a dozen cellar holes/farm outbuildings. Canít wait for cold weather so Iíll be taking a weed wacker to clear some area!

No thank you. No one here wants to see large cents.

1ST GREAT FIND WAS THE SITE. Research pays, and often it is a good idea to follow research with boots on the ground scouting and then plan your hunt.

Great finds, congrats! Nice photos. I especially liked the way you laid out your first one.

Virgin ground? What's that?
