- Metal Detecting
It's been a dream of mine to detect an abandoned psychiatric hospital. I picture a Victorian bldg sitting on a hillside with sprawling lawn built late 19th/early 20th century--should be silver coins and gold jewelry on those lawns and behind the bldg where employees would take their lunch breaks. I did some research and although hundreds were built only a handful remain. Most are in NY; I'm in AZ and the closest I could find is Rockhaven Sanitarium in Glendale, CA. It's a 7 1/2 hr drive and still there may be no tres/security cameras/ fenced area if I ever get there. I do plan on traveling soon. So does anybody know of an abandoned psychiatric hospital/sanitarium I could detect that doesn't have the usual no tres/security cameras/ fenced area so I can detect. I could also work on getting a permission as an option...Thanks ahead....
