About Us

Our Roots

  The Oregon Treasure Trail Society was formed in 1982 when five avid hobbyists put $5 each into the kitty and started the club in an effort to provide an organization that would unite people together with the same interests in metal detecting and searching for coins, tokens, and other small interesting treasures of the past.     Today, we continue to provide a wonderful environment for those interested in this great hobby. Our club pro­vides an opportunity to join with others and enjoy spending time on outings and sharing experiences. Everyone is welcome to attend one of our meetings.     We meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month, at 6:00 p.m. for social hr. and at 7:00 pm for the meeting. Come early and socialize with members from 6:00 to 7:00
