Sometime within the next few days, I will be exploring an old roadbed (long since abandoned) that was used before and during the WBTS. The road is located on a farm here in the Valley. I am acquainted with the owner. The home located on the property dates to the early 19th century and was once occupied by a prominent Valley family. There is quite a bit of history associated with the property. I'll be using both modern and period maps to locate the old roadbed and I'll also be doing some initial fieldwork with a metal detector to help locate anything of historical significance or interest. Hopefully, I'll have something interesting to report back.
