    Pine Grove

    I feel like I ask a lot of question about Pine Grove and its surrounding "villages" haha so i figured id centralize all of my thoughts.

    -Does anyone know a general location of the old airport in Pine Grove (more specifically Suedberg I think) and if anything still stands i know it was once a restaurant/cafe after the airport closed.
    -Any knowledge of the two buildings near Swatara State Park heading towards the indian town gap?
    -Would the giant stone oven near the High Bridge damn be a good place to search?..it also looks like there is an old summer home or cabin on the way..similar to those near ft. indiantown gap.

    Re: Pine Grove

    This is how I got Started Learning the area.
    Asking Alot of Questions.
    And when I didn't get answers,
    I liked I did my own Reserarch.

    If you are speaking of the Iron Masters Mansion
    at Swatara Furnace Yes
    There used to be Big Picnics there
    Regularly.

    Airport Road Runs west off of Darkwood Road


    2 buildings in Suedburg ?
    or 2 Buildings Closer to Indiantown Gap ?

    I Don't know Which Basement you are Reffring to.

    The one on the corner That is an Unknown Building.
    Please stay out. Too Too Dangerous.
    place may fall this winter.

    The Hotel Basement.
    Maybe but will need a Major weeding.
    It is hard to even see it through the Brush.

    Re: Pine Grove

    I will heed your warning and stay out.
    Actually yes I do have several friends that have houses in between those two roads. All very large houses right along S. Tulpehocken one of my friend's house has hidden passages and crawl spaces all over the house..all in all i think i can get permission to hunt 5-7 properties in that general area..also there is an ?abandoned? home behind the st peters church at the end of town heading towards mcdonalds that might be worth an extra look..there is a privy on the very outskirts of the large cemetary (kind of near the questionable abondoned house)..an abondoned shack (dont think its too old though) off of longstretch road in oak grove.
    Also I am VERY curious about the old barn and small marsh right next to the canal.
