I had to make a quick business trip to Cedar Creek, TX, but rather than making the drive down there and back to Fort Worth in one day, I decided to turn this into a weekend detecting trip. I have a good friend and fellow detectorist who owns property in the ghost town of Muldoon. His place in Muldoon is a weekend get-a-way for him and his wife. It was only about 35 miles from where I needed to be in Cedar Creek so I met him in Muldoon Thursday evening. After my quick trip to Cedar Creek on Friday we spent the rest of the day and weekend detecting around town. Continue readingShare this on:
We came across a construction site in downtown Fort Worth. It was the beginning of a new parking lot. For the past 20 years or so it’s been a half grass and half broken asphalt parking lot. It’s history lies in 1909 when a large fire swept that part of town burning every house on this block and many more. Right off the bat we started finding old coins and one of the guys came up with a watch fob. I wasn’t having much luck in the coin category save for a few wheats. However, my redemption came in the form of a nice Fort Worth saloon token.
The Post Office Saloon was located at 708 Houston St. This particular token has the proprietors initials on it, C.A. W. (Charles A Wood), which allowed us to narrow the time frame to 1899-1902.
Eventually I found a few silvers on this site but the token was the top find!Share this on:
