Gold in Bethesda, Maryland 

My article on gold mines in Bethesda, Maryland, came out this week in Bethesda Magazine.

Yes, there's gold in Bethesda. And parts of Virginia and DC.

And there were active mines up through the 1940's. Then the land became worth more as real estate than mines.

If you're in the DC area, pick up the magazine for a brief history lesson and a list of mines, one of which has been reconstructed for historical tourists like me.
