Places To Metal Detect in Alabama

I found my first buried treasure when I was eight years old. It was in the surf at Dauphin Island, Alabama and although I could not see it with my eyes, my feet followed the outline of a rectangular object while my mind showed me a treasure chest full of gold and jewels.

Now retired, I pretty much do what I like, but most days I am searching for something – doing research on anything Alabama. I enjoy the spaces between the places and, to me, the quest is more enjoyable than the discovery. Alabama is a remarkable state. We really do have it all. If you are in to metal detecting, prospecting or relic hunting, our state flag shows you where to look.

Railroads in Alabama
Tennessee and Alabama Railroad.—Company incorporated in 1832. Capital, $3,000,000, to be divided into shares of $100 each. It is known that a population of at least 200,000 already inhabit the counties bordering on the Upper Tennessee and its tributaries, and that they have no market, or outlet for their products, but the long, expensive, and almost impracticable route to New Orleans. The country embraces about 40 counties, in Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia; and it is not inferior in fertility to other portions of the States to which it belongs. The Hiwassee is a considerable stream, rising in the mountains of Georgia, and, running a north-westerly course, discharges itself into the Tennessee above the Suck.
