You all see any gold flakes in there? How far down into the ground is bedrock? Me and my boys may have to come do some test drilling.

You filthy looters better stop destroying history!! If I see you out there I'll turn you in! It is illegal to loot historical artifacts and you can ONLY detect in approved parks with a special use permit issued by the site superintendent!! I MEAN IT!!

The Kimmel cemetary by the State Pond is the oldest in Union county.One marker is dated 1823.This info is on genealogytrails.com .Pretty interesting stuff on there!

what are you 5.its not a historical site just couse someone found a couple coins and spitoon does not make it historical.so if some one found a old coin in your yard is that a historical site too, and if you dug in it do you turn yourself in.

Who should I talk to to see about a drilling permit to do some excavating? I'll give him 25% of my earnings I make there.
