    Hi. 

    I live in the South Mountain area of Franklin county Pa, just 15minutes shy of Waynesboro Pa. zip code is 17261 incase you were wondering. Anyway. I came across your site today looking for treasure hunting sites of Pa. 

    I saw on your site a place to email and tell your stories of treasure hunting. So here's one you may want to add to the ADAMS county area. I live right near the border of Franklin and Adams.

    Just a minute down the road from me in Adams county resided a Hotel that originated in 1876. Its name was The Cold Springs Hotel. This hotel stood 4 stories high and as the story claims was used during and just after the Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg. People used this hotel as well as a place to come and bask in the bubbling springs that are still there today.

    The hotel had burnt to the ground and everything that stood fell straight to the basement.  Now the Boro of Waynesboro owns the property it resides on and all that is merely left is stone foundation and the bubbling pond. It has a game fence around the perimeter, as the forestry dept. of Mount a lot campus people have been keeping care of the trees for the Boro. However the outside perimeter is state ground and can be detected.  This area holds a lot of history that is merely unknown by most.

    I know also just a mile down the road on a road called NEWMAN ROAD soldiers had discarded cannons on the way back from the war. Still hidden in the woods of this road to this day? Another area of possible interest for the detectorist.
