I got back to the old 1850s tavern location tonight. The last couple hunts I walked with the plow zone, so tonight I went against the zone. I don't know how i missed all this. The fish scale is from the late 1800s, the old glass would have been nice whole, the early pontil bottles are hard to find in a field, I would love to find the dump, maybe some day. HH

Nice finds! My great grandfather owned a tavern in a tiny town in rural Illinois. My mom (73) was raised in it by her grandparents and remembers the town in great detail. Most everything is gone now. I would love to take a trip up there someday to see what could be found. I think about it every time you post. Thank you! I wish you future success!

Sounds like a road trip that might be worth taking. There were several around the out lying area where I live, I have detected several over the years.

Here is something I found at one old tavern site along the river. It is off an old cast iron kettle. I found my first cannon ball in the location, the military used to train in the area in the 1850s.

Super cool finds. Looks like you had a great time digging and love that large cent!! Sweet!!
Another surface find, I don't know how I missed it last time I was there, maybe my eyes are getting bad.

This belonged to my maternal grandfather. He was born in 1900 and died in 1968. From Elmore Co. Alabama...
