THE LOST TREASURE OF INDIANA
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
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
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
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
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.
