    I detected a town named Lester a few years ago. It's up by Stampede Pass. King County.
    Not much left of it, and it was a long walk to get to.
    I didn't find much.

    Thanks for the response.

    What did you find? nails, and other hardware? The skagit city townsite is very accessible, and had a busseling little economy for a few years.

    Mostly nails, iron, etc. The railroad had gravelled over a big area for trucks.
    I did find a nice intact bottle of "Shinola" shoe shine, and a few wheaties.

    You may be interested in a town called Lowell...a part of Everett...dates back to 1863...there used to be a school there....I-5 was built right over it in 1962...I am planning on going there at some point to check out if it is even accessible. Recently there was a guy throwing concrete off the overpass onto cars near there so it would be nice to have back up in case any crazies come around. Keep me posted if you or anyone else is interested...

    Coinstar, that's an old thread, but yes, I've detected around Lowell
    a number of times many years back, and came away with a few
    nice goodies for the effort.

    As for Skagit City, this is about the first I've heard of it, and I live
    in the Skagit Valley, right on the Skagit River....

    Hey guys!

    I have been door knocking In lowell, found a rosie.

    Skagit city is all private property with a huge dike woven right through the middle of it. It’s on the north east corner of fir island. I would not call it a hot spot! Lots of river debris... private property... anyways, it would be cool if someone found somthing, but skagit city is no longer a place I have hopes for.

    What part of lowell did you find goodies if you don’t mind sharing?? Hope you’re well! Join the everett metal detecting club, Pilchuck Treasure hunts!

    My great grandparent homestead up near concrete in Lyman, so I’m a local :0

    CF, I was a member of the PTH club back in the 90's when I lived
    in Bothell. Good to hear the gang's still at it..

    I didn’t know Bothell had a metal detecting club....I've only heard of one around West Seattle or somewhere in that vicinity. Would love to see what goodies were found in Lowell...Concrete is an interesting place...I was just there briefly...and only found a Jr fire marshal ring....I think you must have cleaned up.

    I imagine then you know about the land that is located on the former mental institution...my memory is fuzzy....maybe going east up highway 2, correction highway 20, and turning left at a roundabout...lots of delapitated buildings and bear signs....has an unmarked cemetery?

    Everett has the Detecting club - PCT - pilchuck treasure hunts.

    The mental institution was actually just opened up to the public, part of it anyways. Theirs a disc golf course, and some of the grounds are open. I found a silver ring a merc and a wa quarter. The oldest parts of the grounds have been developed, and I wandered and wandered with my machine and couldnít find anything epic there...
