I really appreciate the work people have gone through to develop those cool maps sites that we can freely use. I've been using THIS SITE FOR MAPPING OLD HOME SITES
I came upon an old boys camp that dates back to about 1928... I don't know when it was torn down, but all that is left are the foundation remains. Found a few cool things there. See the images. I don't know much about the bottles.. but these were about all of the ones I saw intact that looked intersting. Enjoy and God Bless our Servicemen and women who gave their lives for us. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸

PS-- the 6 pennies were wheaties... the other are just normal modern clad.

Leg off a cast stove/heater.
Bottles are machine made, aluminum screw cap not too old 40's maybe. (don't drink it) :laughing7:
Cool pocket watch case, well done.
The stove leg, watch and cutlery seem to predate the scouts
Maybe there was a homestead there prior to the camp.
