Sometimes just a simple clue is all that is needed to locate an old cellar hole or eastern ghost town. Old maple trees may be a sign that an old home site once existed in the area.
Searching for the these sites is an adventure you and your family can do together. If you love the outdoors, it’s a great way to spend time, and to learn about American history.
If your someone who loves metal detecting, as I do, then searching around the old foundations can give you an opportunity to find many old relics. Once again, my website will help you to search and discover where the ghost towns are, and what lies beneath their ground.
Florida ghost towns are not the only eastern state that has ghost towns.

Are You Interested In A Metal Detector Or Accessories?
If you do not own a metal detector and you are thinking of purchasing one, do not over spend. Too often, newcomers to the hobby buy expensive detectors only to discover nothing but confusion about how to use their new model.
If you spend between $350-$450 on a new model, that is good enough. Just read the owners manual, and practice with your detector, and you will do fine. Move up to the high end models after you have become proficient in the hobby.
