    New from central Mass

    It looks to me like not a lot of people read this particular section but I'm going to try this here anyway. I'm fairly new to this hobby. I started to get into it a couple of years ago and then never really pursued it. I came across my detector the other day and thought why not give this a shot again. I've been hitting up some local parks in the Worcester area and I've been making out ok with clad and the like. In the mean time I've been doing some research and I've found a couple of spots that I think have some serious potential. The first is a confirmed tavern that was built in the early 1800's and is now the site of a modern medical facility. I have permission to detect this property already. As far as I can tell no one has requested permission to detect this site as far back as 1970. So I think there is some real potential. The second spot is a bit more fun. It's the focus of a local legend dating back to before the actual founding of Worcester. I have a general idea of where to start looking but this one could take a while to find, if it exists at all. I'm looking to share these sites with an experienced local detectorist. I want to make sure that if these spots aren't panning out then it's not because of my lack of experience. If anyone is interested in meeting up then send me a pm and I will share my research.

    No, but it looks promising, if it has not been disturbed.

    Hey Jangers, looks like you are running into the "not much activity" in the Mass section as well. I am a bit East Worcester and put up a post looking to see if anyone was still detecting in Mass. Lots of views and lil replies. Send me a PM if you want. I am not a pro but looking to get out, do some detecting and have some fun.

    Not sure where Jim in MA is from but that story sounded enticing.... A long lost park? Hmmmmm!

    Nice to see that there are some fellow Mass detectorists out there! I'm in the eastern part of the state, but would be interested in comparing notes or getting together to do some digging. I've had very good success with the Garrett AT-Pro over the course of the past four years, but am considering upgrading to the XP Deus. I'd love spend an afternoon hunting with someone familiar with that machine. Chime in if you have some interest or PM me. HH.

    Sorry Honey, I can’t. I’ve got plans with my metal detector.

    South central Mass here. I'm not very far from the Auburn / Worc line, maybe 25min. My guess would be the area is heavily developed by now but, its worth a look.

    Pinehurst Park is now a residential neighborhood. Did some poking around but never found anything too old there.

    I'm new to MD from Charlton. I've found a couple decent places but no real good finds yet. If anyone in the Worcester area wants to recommend a good spot or would like to have a MD partner, let me know.
