The Granite State Treasure Hunters Club for Historic Preservation was formed in May of 1974 by Don and Paulette Wilson. Our Club is dedicated to the metal detecting hobby with the intent to promote treasure hunting through safe and responsible practices. Our Club is the oldest registered club of its kind in New Hampshire.

Club meetings are typically held on the third Sunday of each month, indoors in the winter, or at our monthly hunt sites in the warmer months.  We hold seeded and natural hunt field trips between April and October where we can provide training for members on the proper use of their detectors and associated equipment. We then end the year with a Holiday Party and Annual Meeting in November.  Joining the Granite State Treasure Hunters Club entitles you to participate in all club functions.


Your membership and participation in this club provides you with a greater knowledge of the hobby along with an understanding of proper metal detecting ethics. With this knowledge, members understand the framework that they must work within, especially when “searching” on private property.
We thank you for reading this information about our club and we hope that the information we have given you is enough to interest you in becoming a member of the Granite State Treasure Hunters Club for Historic Preservation. We do not limit the members to the state of New Hampshire, as we have members from surrounding states. 


We are always looking for new people to share the excitement of treasure hunting and welcome all, from the experienced pro to someone brand new to treasure hunting. From time to time we may have a limit on the number of members that can enroll, so if you are interested, please contact ….. and if enrollment is at capacity, we can add you to our waiting list.
