Metal Detecting a 1700s Stone Cabin Along the Delaware River in SE Pennsylvania 

Metal detecting can lead to some truly exciting discoveries, but sometimes, the joy of the experience is simply in the exploration itself. That was certainly the case on a recent visit to a 1700s stone cabin along the Delaware River in SE Pennsylvania.  Unfortunately, I didn't come across any spectacular finds during my visit. However, I did have a great time exploring and imagining what life was like for the people who lived in the cabin so many years ago. The homeowner managed to find a spoon, dart, and a decorative clothing piece, but otherwise, we came up empty-handed. Despite the lack of significant finds, the experience was still incredibly rewarding.
