Where did this list come from?
Are there more sites 'off the map'?

This is the reason why one of the basic set of research tools any MDer/Treasure Hunter needs is a collection of maps covering the same geographic area over as wide a range of time as possible.   If you take a recent Highway map for any state in the United States and compare it to a same scale Highway map for the same state from the 1930's, you'll notice that not only have many of the roads been moved and/or renamed, but many of the towns on one map will not appear on the other.   Sometimes it is a matter of larger towns swallowing smaller towns.   Sometimes it is just a matter of the town changing names (as in Truth or Consequences, NM).   And sometimes it is because a place is no longer large enough or significant enough to appear on the newer maps.   (Of course, you also have new towns appearing where there was nothing but old farm land).

Could any of the seasoned veterans in the west Phoenix area recommend an easy search site away from the more trafficed areas that someone with a 12 year old could be comfortable with?  We are trying to stay away from rough urban areas, and also wish to avoid as much of the scorpion/snake population as possible.

thanks

I would recommend going to a park some evening. one place that might work, in Litchfield Park, where they hold the 4th of July fireworks might be a place to try, also

Tolleson is an old historic town for an un-remodeled park, but I would do a little reading up on Tonopaugh.

As a native Phoenician I can tell you that a lot of area's just around Phoenix have been deleted from maps. Some areas deleted /renamed just to protect then from treasure hunters. I can remember a metal saguaro sculptor in the 60's that was in the vicinity of US Airways Center (formerly America West Arena)  and misplaced /stolen , china town (a town built beneath the town row houses). A bunch of mines within 9 miles of Phoenix most people have never heard of, one was the the second biggest gold producer in Maricopa county.
Also the "Golden Gate settlement " neighborhood by sky harbor ( I actually lived there for like 16 years) , The old CO-0P Stores.
The Jacobs Waltz  (Lost Dutchman  mine, superstition Mountains. ) house near the Food City on 16 st and Mohave. A Mission that stands to this day that you will not find on a map, The San Francisco De Xavier mission located at the end of south Mountain Ave, South of 24 st. Old ranch ruin located  just a few miles to  the south of that(never knew what it was called). The four crosses mountain.
