The lost treasure of Indiana.


Where is the lost treasure of the Indiana?

Indiana has a beautiful hilly countryside that is dotted with caves, underground rivers, woody areas, and many hiding places for treasure. If you are a treasure seeker, you may wish to spend some time searching for a few of the lost treasures that have not been discovered in several counties throughout Indiana.

Let’s start in Adams County, Indiana, which is in the central portion of Indiana with boundaries touching the state of Ohio. During prohibition, it has been told that a racketeer buried a very large sum of money along the banks of the Wabash River somewhere between Geneva and Berne close to where State Road 27 crosses the river. As of today, the money has never been located.

Off to Jackson County. The Reno Brothers were famous robbers of the area and in 1868 after robbing a train and burying the $80,000 they headed to Canada of course with a sheriff’s posse trailing them. Not only did they bury this treasure but also it has been told that in their home in Rockford, Indiana they also hid $98,000 from one of their other robberies. There home was not actually located in Rockford but somewhere in between Rockford and Seymour near State Road 31a.

Take a trip to Jefferson County and look up the old Harris Farmhouse fondly known as Bear Farm. Rumor has it that this farm was used to smuggle slaves during the civil war and many gold coin caches are hidden on the property. The farm can be found if you follow these directions. Go northeast three miles from Madison and when you see a hollow on the Ohio River this is where the gold is supposed to be buried. However, time has changed the area and the hollow may have changed.

If you have time and can get permission, you can dig around George Rogers Clark Historical Park just south of Vincennes in Knox County. You may be the lucky one to find the $5,000 gold coins buried during the Civil War by General John Morgan.

You may have heard about Al Capone, his henchmen, and his escapades around Chicago, but he and his gangsters were also known to travel through parts of Indiana as well. As the legend goes, one of his henchmen just prior to be gunned down hid 2,000 cases of whiskey in a cave somewhere close to Michigan City on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. The legend states that the opening of the cave was closed with explosives and the whiskey was worth around $300,000.

If you could find the exact point outside of Crown Point, Indiana in Lake County, you would find yourself a millionaire or so they say. A gangster by the name of Jim Colosimo, during 1920, buried diamonds worth millions of dollars. The exact location has never been found.

Even the FBI has searched for this treasure without ever locating the exact spot. Travel to Marshall County, then close to Bremen on State Road 6. There is a dirt road there and approximately one and half miles down the road, Jim Genna buried a very large amount of money contained in a steel box. He placed them under a rock pile in a pasture. Good luck finding this one.

In Martin County, just north of Shoals, Indiana right off State Road 150 where it overlooks the White River on what is fondly called Rock McBride Bluff is a fortune. During 1810, Indians from the area buried figurines and gold bullion in a safe.

Another bad guy that traveled through Indiana was John Dillinger. The FBI has stated that Dillinger buried around $25,000 in Mooresville, Indiana on his father’s 67-acre farm.

As the story goes, outside Terre Haute, Indiana along State Road 42 is a fortune worth $95,000. During the 1920’s it is believed that a bank employee embezzled this amount of paper currency from the bank and then proceeded to bury the money and then committed suicide.

If you can find any of these hidden treasures, you are much better at solving mysteries than even the FBI and the most prominent treasure seekers.
