    Indiana Treasure hunting?

    I recently moved to Indiana after retiring from law enforcement in Florida. My wife is from Attica IN and her family has a farm in that area. Many years past I use to trasure hunt in Florida. I am getting back in to Treasure hunting after seeing many old home sites and people looking for gold and whatever in the many creeks and gullys in the area. Would be glad to find some one in central Indiana who shares this interest and would like to plan hunts.

    Re: Indiana Treasure hunting?

    Hello BOHUNTZ, Welcome to the forum...
    Your original post must have slipped by me back on the 12th. I'm located here on the westside of Indy.
    I haven't been getting out except for a few quick hunts, ex-specially since winter hit. I mainly hit some of the older parks here in town, but would love to hook up sometime, maybe this spring..., to do some serious hunting...
    Until then,,, hope to see ya on the forum...
    Good luck, & Happy hinting~

    Re: Indiana Treasure hunting?

    I've lived in Indiana all my life and I've done a lot of reseach on potential areas, problem is that Indiana hasn't got "a lot" of early history with most of it's towns not being settled until well into the mid to late 1800's. However, the best coin shooter I ever knew did most of his Indiana metal detecting in the older "inner city" parts of town because in his words, "this is where most of the older activity took place." Makes sense I guess, as he would always say, "can't find old coins where old coins ain't." I did a little piece on this issue at my website if you want to check it out. http://www.adventurequestusa.com but it is just a very brief summary of this man's point of view.

    I'm a newbie, but I live up in Kokomo. There is also a couple up in Wabash that is active.

    I have seen other hoosiers in a couple of other places on the net. it's too bad, if everyone would consolidate to a message board we would have quite a large group.

    Good lord almighty. You have come from Florida, the state with the most Spanish treasure on its beaches, civil war treasures of the Confederacy, not to mention huge pirate and Indian treasure. If your just getting excited about all of this by coming to indiana then get ready for a shock. Your switching to 1945 quarters as opposed to silver pieces of eight.

    Re: Indiana Treasure hunting?

    Yes there is glacier gold in Putnam County. I have found some in just about every creek I have panned in. I will never get rich from the amounts but it is nice to get out and spend time in teh peace and quiet.

    Only old sites interest me

    Re: Indiana Treasure hunting?

    I am fromn Putnam County. I started using a White MXT a little over six years ago. My favorite search sites are old schooll buidlings which I research at the library. Of course, most of the time it's just a field. And you are right, most of these places don't go much fuirther back thatn the middle 1850s. I always look at this way, it is proably a lot harder to find things but often what you do find is old and good. Now I have found CIvil War buckle (cats paw), some solid silver old dimes, and quarters. such as Barber dimes and quarters. three years ago, I moved about 50 miles away to an old area of Henricks County, Indiana. So you might say I have had to start all over with my research. Which after three years has led me to three old county schools which go back to about the same date in time as PUtnam county since Brownsburg town was established in about 1848. I would enjoy hearing back from you interested in how you research. UI have found that this is a hobby you really get hooked on especially if you lvoe histroy. The more you search the deeper you get into history.

    Happy Hunting!
    look forward to hearing from you
