    Until someone pipes in - you might consider browsing Sub-Forums: Pennsylvania for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to Pennsylvania.

    Duquesne's campus. That would have to be one awesome place to look. Since we both know that's not going to happen, how far out do you live from Pittsburgh? You can try parks ( if its allowed) or old homesteads / farms ( with permission)

    I'm about 20 mins north of PGH and tend to stay out of Allegheny county parks. City park might be ok, but the rules for county parks are ridiculous although Boyce might be accessible with a permit. Same with North Park

    You might consider attending a meeting of the Pittsburgh Past Finders. We meet in the Northland Public Library the first Monday of every month from 7 to 9 pm. They're a bunch of old fogies, but they're neat old fogies. They have two or three seeded hunts per year. In addition, the club has permission to hunt in all Allegheny County parks. Silver is rare, but you can always come up with a handful of change from 1970 to date.

    My most consistent success is knocking on doors in old neighborhoods. Permission to hunt is given a little over 50% of the time and I average at least one silver coin per house. Good luck.

    I detect therefore I am
    Looks to be a fair number of frontier forts and Indian camps/towns to the SE and SW of Pittsburgh. I suppose Fort Pitt is off limits? LOL

    There's more forts than you can imagine in SW PA. I live about a mile off of what was once the Forbes Trail, and I know of 4 fort sites within 20 miles of me. All are on privately owned land. Look for old maps of the area and find out where things once were.
