“CARTHAGE, Mo. —
Every once in a while, long buried pieces of Carthage’s history quite literally come to the surface.
On May 19, a Carthage City Council member is sponsoring a day that could bring even more of Carthage’s history to light.
Council Member Ed Hardesty, owner of Hardesty Enterprises, is planning a metal detector’s day in Carthage’s parks, in conjunction with National Metal Detector’s Day, an industry sponsored day for metal detector hobbyists.” – Taken from Article
