Discovery of a Picnic Grove in Upstate New York

Metal Detecting The Piles Of Scraped Soil At The Construction Site Can Bring Amazing Results!

I had unearthed 200 more coins before the construction finally destroyed the picnic grove completely. On my last visit, I found only one coin, sort of a Grove's symbolic farewell to me.

Here is a series of pictures that could be called "Then and Now". I took pictures of a few spots at the the picnic grove during the first year I was metal detecting there. And I photographed the same spots after the construction was completed a few years later.
