A treasure worth $5 million in the Rocky Mountains
Rumour has it that a man called Forest Fenn scattered wealth estimated at around $5 million and consisting of jewelry, gold, and valuable artifacts, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. He also wrote a poem that is believed to hold clues to the location of the treasure. It’s been over a
decade, and treasure hunting enthusiasts haven’t found anything yet. Up for some adventure while also trying to decode the poem? Head to the Rocky Mountains! A word of caution though – people have died here trying to look for the hidden treasure.
Silverware worth millions in Nevada
Ted Binion, the heir to a casino business, died a wealthy man. Well, he was murdered, and reportedly, the motive was the theft of his extensive collection of silverware.
Though some of it was recovered, people believe there’s a lot buried somewhere in and around his property at his ranch at Pahrump, Nevada. Some even claim that the buried treasure could be valued at several millions!
Buried pirate treasure at Palemano Point, Hawaii
Palemano Point is an exposed reef off the Big Island in Hawaii. In the 16th century, an English privateer is believed to have lost some treasure at this location. It is said that the treasure is still lying hidden, waiting to be discovered.
Word has it that the treasure is worth more than 5 million dollars! While many have attempted to look for it for years, luck has favored none. Even the ship which carried the treasure hasn’t been found yet. But you could always give it a try!
Spanish riches off the Oregon coast
Care for some Spanish treasure in gold and silver? Sometime in 1705, a Spanish ship carrying treasure was lost at sea, off the Oregon coast to be specific. Since then, people have done everything to look for the treasure, but it has all come to nothing. But who knows when that could change?
The Beale treasure in East Virginia
Thomas Beale buried a whopping $65 million worth of treasure near Lynchburg. He left some codes to be deciphered with an innkeeper, which when decoded would reveal the location of the treasure. Only one code was broken and two remain unsolved to date. The exact location of the treasure remains a mystery. And the treasure is waiting to be discovered!
Hidden loot in Oklahoma
A band of outlaws in the 19th century hid their loot somewhere around Robbers Cave. There are a lot of tales around this band of outlaws headed by a man named Jesse James. Interestingly, all stories point to somewhere near Robbers Cave. So, loot worth at least a million dollars still lies hidden.
Treasure hiding in the Catskill Mountains, New York
A gangster named Dutch Schultz was shot dead by a rival. As the man lay dying, he reportedly talked of a buried treasure worth $7 million around the Catskill Mountains, New York. But, unfortunately, he died before he could give proper information.
It is still unclear where the treasure exactly is located and also whether it really exists or not. But, many believe that the treasure is very much real and is out there somewhere.
Hidden pirate loot at Maine
Pirate Samuel Bellamy had a lot of loots under his belt. When the loot became too big to lug around in pirate ships, Bellamy had a house built in Machiasport, Maine to hold the treasures. However, he or his men did not stay for too long in this house, for they had more loots to carry out.
Bellamy was hanged, eventually. Though the exact location of the house is lost, many strongly believe that the house existed and the treasure, too, is lying around, hidden somewhere in the vicinity of Machia sport.
Hunting for treasures that have been hidden for years is fascinating. Since the locations for treasure hunting are outdoors, you could even consider hunting as a sport. If you know a little about which broadheads to use, a treasure hunting adventure can be extended to a hunting adventure, too!
