    Albert Lea, MN detecting

    I'm Darrel, I've been detecting for about 4 years, and been reading this form for about that long. I'm from Albert Lea, MN in souther MN. Detecting has been good to me, I have found gold and silver rings, old US coins, jewelry and some relics. I swing a DFX with a standard coil. I ask a lot of people for permission to swing their yards, about 90% say go ahead. Love the form, and love the hobby.

    Howdy Darrel I know right Albert Lea is I used to go from KC MO to Minneapolis and back every week. Some where not too far from you along that route was the Chestnut Inn they had a huge trucker breakfast that was hard to beat. I can't remember what exit it was I took to get to it just too many years ago. Never will forget the winters making that trip though, it got pretty hairy sometimes through there don't ya know.

    I met a guy from Albert Lea 2 years ago and we met halfway in New Ulm for some detecting. We both had DFX's and I remember he found an 1886 IH in nice condition in an older park in downtown New Ulm.(It was either Washington Park or was on Washington street). The only name I remember was Jamison and don't know if it was a 1st or last name. Between the two of us we picked up about 170 coins on the day. Havent seen any posts from him in over a year( I think he used to post of ) so I don't know what happened to him.

    I'm in Mankato and would be interested in getting together with some "locals" to hunt sometimes. Drop me a line?

    The only way to really understand something is to play with it.

    Hi Daryl,
    You're only about 50 miles west of me.
    I've done a lot of research and detecting in and around Albert Lea. I located the site of the first Freeborn County Fairground. It's only about a mile west of town. It was only used for about 13 years (1878 to 1891). Last time I was there it was in a corn field. I obtained permission from the owner and detected there several times. The fairground was later moved to a site near Acadamy Park for a few years before moving to its present location. Many old coins were found in Central Park too. A friend found an 1877 Indianhead cent in Pioneer Park a number of years ago. There used to be a boat landing somewhere near the park. Might be a good spot to do a little water hunting.

    Sorry to post on an old post. I recently bought my 10 year old son a metal detector and we are really excited to start finding some old coins and relics. I am going to purchase a detector for myself as well. I am trying to research some on Albert Lea to find some good places to go hunting and was curious as to where this old fairgrounds you posted about was. Any information on some good spots would be much appreciated.. Thanks
