Both of the City’s historic properties were fully scanned when acquired
by the City. Because these properties are historic in value, and in
order to protect and preserve the property, as well as prevent
unintended injury and liability, the properties are not open to metal
detectors or any unauthorized excavation. However, the City of Mesquite
has other park sites, which may allow the use of metal detectors. You
may contact the Parks & Recreation Department for more information.
