  1. Had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Andrews the last member of family to own house. She though she had info on gold buried there. I looked for some time with a detector but never found anything except Cut Nails. There was evidence someone else had been digging. Was an interesting afternoon. I believe she was from New Jersey. She also told us stories of the ghost that inhabit house.
