The Treasure Hunters Society of Santa Clara Valley was founded in April of the Bicentennial year of 1976 by the combined effort of two dedicated and knowledgeable treasure hunters, Dave Hayslip of Los Gatos, California and Grover Ingram of San Jose, California. The club was founded in and is still based in the "Valley of Hearts Delight" in Santa Clara County, California.
The club we enjoy today started out as just a few friends with common interest in metal detecting and treasure hunting who wanted to share with others their interest and knowledge of the hobby. Over the years those initial informed gatherings grew to a size where a meeting hall was needed. Committees had been formed, new positions were now needed to meet the needs of a growing club. Political Advisors, Outside Hunts, Sunshine Committee, Refreshments and Web Master, are some of the ones added to meet these needs.LIFE MEMBERS
