    Bath County fields

    Spent a few hours today and yesterday just blundering around some open fields and picked up a few items of interest. Picked up a fair share of items of non-interest as well! Great weather and good excerise at any rate. It's been good to get back out.

    Re: Bath County fields

    Howard Crouch has a good relic book for referencing finds.

    It was the first book I ever bought because I was finding so many weird items I couldn't ID.

    Hey bud,

    It's not easy to find some things there because the land has been tilled so many times. I was born and raises right there in Olympia Springs. My family owned the land the springs used to be on, the have long been destroyed by government pipelines and such. There are only a few left. Growing up I remember plowing up arrow heads, cannon ball halves and things like that. There were some items that I never realized what they were I'm sure. The land around the old hotel, if it still stands, I haven't been home in years, there should be a lot of stuff maybe a little closer to where it stands or stood. The hotel was closed down after a disagreement between two gentleman and it resulted in one of the dying. My great grandmother lived to be 103 and told me many of the stories. Keep looking, speak to some of the farmers and families around there. Tell them what you are searching for. They are all very nice very humble people, I'm sure they would be willing to let you look around or show you what they have found over the years. Good luck and happy hunting!

    I have spent many hours hunting around "The Springs". The finds in this post came from a field across the road (RT 36) from the resort. The family that currently owns the property are extremely nice and have allowed me to detect there for many years. The foundation of the big hotel is still there albeit with a barn built over a portion of it. The plumbing tiles are still intact! Believe it or not, the areas either side of the pipeline are great places to search. Alot of those deeper finds were brought to the surface. I've tried to locate the horse track that was on the property but so far it has elluded me. I did find the Civil War skirmish site up from the Springs on the Old State Road. Alot of history there and it's always a thrill to hunt there. Thank you for the shout out. If you're ever in the area, please let me know.
