Did you ever wonder what your neighborhood looked like before your neighborhood was there? Ever wonder who were the people who lived there before you? Did you ever as a child hike along riverbanks or through wooded area's and find ruins of mysterious old buildings and structures and wonder when were the built or who built them and why?
Quondam Exploration is the act of identifying and exploring forgotten places of local and national historic interest, - the exploration of 'what once was', (evidence of the past still present today). Many unidentified ruins exist today in the oddest of places sometimes.
Historical 'witness' and volunteer stewardship combined with preservation through photographic documentation are the primary interests in the hobby.
