Wishing well??

More than 40 years ago, I came across what looked like a small square cement footer - about 3' x 3', filled up with water and algae. Spring fed?? In the weeds was a small faded hand painted wooden sign that said Wishing Well. The sign back then looked like it was many years old. This little structure was close to a small lake that was part of the property of a country resort - long torn down. Reading the posts on this forum got me wondering what's at the bottom of that thing?? Does it have a cement bottom? Any thoughts?

Re: Wishing well??

Sounds like you may have found a honey hole. I would be swinging a coil around that whole area.

Re: Wishing well??

It's extremely over grown. I think it would be difficult. I'm wondering what's on the bottom. I never checked to see how deep it was. I may have to check it out if I get down that way.

Re: Wishing well??

is it still there? you said more than 40 years ago.

if it is still there, i would do as night eyes suggested but very quietly. it just may be a honey hole with some valuable old coins.

Re: Wishing well??

I concur with the above, this is the type of site that could be an absolute honey hole!

Re: Wishing well??

CasB , after you get permission to search , take one of those single blade weed wackers to clear the brush . It's worked well for me many times in the past . Best of luck in your search .

Re: Wishing well??

When I get down that way again, I'm gonna stop and check it out. I'll provide an update then.

Hope you get down that way before another 40 years from now.
