    Dig at Old School House - 3 Silver Coins (1-Washington)

    Hello Friends

    I've been driving past a small park in the country for about 5 years now, but I've never seen anyone using it.
    I noticed a flat piece of vacant property next to it; the two properties are divided by a row of very old pine trees. So I got to wondering . . . "the park is surrounded by 100 year old trees, so is the "flat" piece of property . . . did the two used to be one at some point?" So, I started to do some research and found the land used to be occupied by the Myrtle School House - Built in 1880

    Here is a bit of the history, as well as, well as some old photos.

    Myrtle school was built in 1880 on the south side of the 9th Concession of Whitby Township, a short distance west of Highway 12. It was a board and batten building covered with insubrick
    in the late 1940s. In July 1940 the building was raised and a basement was built underneath it.
    The building was demolished in 1978.


    I hunted both of the properties today for about 5 hours and made some interesting finds!

    Found:

    1925 Canadian Silver Quarter
    1949 Washington Quarter
    1945 Canadian Silver Dime
    1917 Canadian Large Cent
    1936 '41 & '42 Canadian Pennies

    I'm heading back again tomorrow and hope to find a ring or a coin from the 1800's!

    Happy hunting everyone!
    Dave

    PS. Sorry about the quality of the pics, all I had today was my cell phone camera. :P

    Thanks for the tip Herbie! I've got one saved from 1860 of "Durham Region" where I live. I see your finding some cool relics also! I'm going to hunt there again today, so I'll post my finds this evening.

    Have a great long weekend buddy,
    Dave

    Great finds, and the research paid off nicely. Hope it produces more for you. My only two V nickels came from a former one room school site. Probably some poor kids lost lunch money.
