Pennsylvania brothers and sisters! As my home township, Paradise history means a lot to me and finding interesting spots to hunt isn't too bad either. The problem is that I've exhausted the local historical societies map archives and kept coming back with two separate approximately drawn maps which in a rough sense helped a lot but having more material to study could help eliminate some wasted scouting time. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for your time

Cody

If you haven't done so already, look for the history of Monroe County published, most likely, in the 1880's. There should be lots of information there to help you find places to detect.

if you haven't yet, you may want to find the Monroe county atlas

you will either need to check with Historical Societies, Libraries, the Court house,
or watch Ebay.

Be aware when looking online there are at least 3 Monroe County Atlas's listed by f.w.beers.

New York, PA & Michigan I think

Having a hell of a time locating the beers atlas. Maybe a state or county library?
