Maine Ghost Towns

Maine ghost towns exist as empty holes in the ground. Nothing remains of the home our town except a stone cellar. Sometimes you can see old, broken bottles, or bits of pottery shards, the only reminders that once upon a time, there was a family, or a town that had lived there.

If you love American history, you and your family can search out these old home sites. It’s an exciting adventure that will give you the opportunity to understand how difficult it was for those first pioneers to live under harsh conditions.

Do you enjoy metal detecting? If so, then searching for these lost old towns will give you the opportunity to find some exciting relics from the past. This page explains where some of the ghost towns exist.

If you enjoy exploring old, abandoned places, then these areas may have them. Just be sure you get permission if they are on private property.

I was the first to produce, film and host a metal detecting TV series.

Do You Metal Detect?

Are You Interested In A Metal Detector Or Accessories?

Using a metal detector around the old towns can be an exciting adventure.

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.

Visit my store and see what great deals there are on metal detectors, accessories, and much more.
