Just up the street from the FD is Mill Pond and next to the dam is an old wooden building, It is the Dr Paines Celery Compound Building (the old square bottles we all own). There is some killer digging to be done all along the shore of the Connecticut River so enjoy yourself and be friendly with the locals, they are a decent group of folks.


sounds awesome...

Those KEEP OUT signs are for the other guy. They aren't for you.

Just remember - Taking without permission is theft.

Although sometimes you can justify the liberation of a few items!

I once found an unlisted local after checking out an abandoned farmhouse, got hundreds worth of 1940s weekly TV program guides from another, and made a nice score of bottles and stoneware after creeping into the basement of a demolished house (15% of the basement was navigable, rest was caved-in, very dangerous but I'd do it again 1,000 times). Been into many other places which cautious mothers warn their children never to enter, and it's a good thing too because otherwise those folk would have gotten to the goods before me! [:D]

If you can get in the house without ripping up boards or breaking anything, then I'd do it. Breaking and entering is worse than mere trespassing. Either way you won't get sent to hell for it, so be watchful for suspicious eyes and have a blast. You only live once, and I personally like living close to the edge. Makes our finite years far more interesting.

I for one think trespassing is always a good idea.

Seriously, you should look into who owns the house. Town records would help, but you could also ask the neighbors. I doubt the cats would know however.

I am glad we didnt have computers when I was a kid, or I might not have explored the 100s of abandon houses that we did,[8D]

there are tons of old abandoned houses around here,i could probably find some good bottles if it wasnt for stupid pine trees,they make an old house site just about impossible to get to(especially the young pine trees) you cant drive down any dirt roads around here without seeing a bunch of set out pines,my grandfather took me to several old house sites the other day and they were all covered in pines,if it wasnt for them and concrete id probably have a lot better collection[:mad:]

I throw nuts down from the balcony to them.. they're so cute when they stand up on their back legs and wring their little paws in anticipation of the next nut tossing.. [:)] What do you do, take photos.. video them? I'd love to see some of your work!
