I've been waiting to run into a friend of mine for some time, He lives in a house that he said they researched and found a building permit issued in 1901. I've been wanting to hunt it for some time and I got permission today. Never been hit. While discussing what items he knew about the history of the immediate area, He showed me some interesting things about the old house. Two cisterns. One on each side of the house. Nice lake in back. House sits right on the original main road thru town. RR underneath highway out front. Then he tells me...hey the guy next door will probably let you hunt there too...okie dokie. Then he leads me over to a small building on the property where he points out an old foundation still in the ground. He tells me this is the original foundation of the hotel that used to sit there... 100 year old oaks line both sides. Back yard drops off about 20 feet down to the lake which sits about 50 yards from the house. The house next door at the landlords was built reusing parts from the old hotel. I'm steady researching. Wish me luck while I put some pieces together and can post more info. I'm looking forward to getting in there and possibly having some good luck on relics and maybe coins too. I've got my bud talked into detecting with me as he showed some interest. I told him I'd have a machine for him too.
