In the Southwest we have many species of Rattlesnakes. They are very abundant. When you're searching old buildings, desert areas, be alert to the fact you may come upon a snake.

Treasure in Your Own Back Yard

This article will present information to stimulate your thinking for finding treasure in your own back yard. The backyard we are referring to is, the town where you live.

The current structure and land included a tennis court, large pool, and very large 3-story barn. All of this was setting on approximately 20 acres. The original land and structures included 25 coke ovens, and a lead casting foundry.

Do you have an old racetrack in your area? Ideally one no longer in use. The primary focus will be where the bleachers and concession stand were located.
