    Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    Hi all just signed up yesterday. Anyone interested in Detecting in Druid Hill Park between January and the end of March 2009? Any Saturday or Sunday except the 2ND Sunday of the month weather and ground condition permitting. City permits cost $25.00 and are good from January til the end of December and I need to get certified and also apply for a permit .You will need to become certified by a metal detecting club before a permit will be issued. The certification means you know the proper way to fill the hole. I'd also like to meet in a public place to introduce ourselves to each other and discuss reseach. I live in Baltimore County, Dundalk. Merry Christmas

    Has there been any more development on this hunt? What is the history of Druid Hill, and what sorts of things are expected to be found there? Thanks!

    I was there back in April, found a bit of clad and a lot of trash (cans, pull tabs, bottle tops). I am sure there is some good items to be found, just not where we were hunting.

    Re: Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    Thanks for the replies Creskol and Joe Kerr. You are the only replies so far including PM. The park was opened in 1860. You can put Druid Hill Park into a search engine and learn the history of it. It's hard to say what is to be found but I'm sure we'll find pull tabs and the like, hopefully some keepers. I am waiting for 1-27-09 to attend a Maryland Free State Treasure Club meeting to become certified to fill a dug hole, a requirement to get a City Metal Detecting Permit. That permit is good for most of the city parks for the year. What part of the park were you MDing Joe Kerr? There is a Zoo in the park and some other attractions. Here is the web site address of The Maryland Free State Treasure Club. www.marylandfreestate.com HH to all, slomoe

    slomoe, we parked at the zoo, and headed south around the ball fields, through some woods (saw where a homeless person was living),headed east and hit an area with a location of picnic tables in ruins, a boarded up building and just past this, up on a hill is a playground.

    Re: Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    Thanks Joe Kerr for that info, I'll keep it in mind when I go to recon the Park. I just got back from the Baltimore County Public Library. I checked out a book about Druid Hill Park. During the Civil War 15 regiments of Union soldiers were camped there, not all at the same time. HH to all slomoe

    OMG! Didn't know you could actually do this! Count me in! Im in Pasadena, MD. I thought The park was on the list of National Historical Sites, thus off limits?

    I'm new to mding but really would love to get in on this hunt. Please PM me to let me know what I need to do to get involved.

    Re: Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    Hello and Welcome PiercesDad. I'll have to check that out. The City will let us know if we can MD or not. I would get a permit if I were you, contact a metal detecting club to get yourself certified. I read a book about Pasadena titled The Peninsula. The Post Master's wife's name was Elva thus the area known as Elvaton was named after her. She was from California and she gave Pasadena, Md. its name. That is what the book says. HH to all slomoe

    Keep me posted as plans develop .. I am leaving for Texas in the morning and will be gone for a month or so. Although I live in Virginia, I grew up in Maryland and started hunting there in 1968. I return often to detect. Also, please tell me more about this hole-filling certification thing. Thanks!

    Re: Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    Hello all, here is a link with the explaination of becoming certified to dig/fill a hole on Baltimore City, Md. property. I see no date of these requirements, things change. It is up to you to check with the City for any changes. HH to all Slomoe http://marylandartifactrecoverysocie.../instruct1.pdf

    You are awesome! I contacted a person who works at the parks office and she could not come up with this document!

    Re: Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    I am referring to the Dummy Line. (please don't take offense) It was an old trolly line. Plus the stairway to nowhere.

    I also just received an e-mail from the parks dept with a metal detecting application and it is the exact same one posted earlier in this thread.

    Re: Planned Druid Hill Park Hunt

    I have located a book on the history of this park. I'm picking it up from the Enoch Pratt Library on Monday. I'll keep you all posted on any info I find.

    Anybody want to start with prospective scheduling?
