COLUMBIA CITY AND
THE CURSED TREASURE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Columbia City and the cursed treasure.
It is believed, that a treasure is buried along the
coast of where Columbia City, Oregon now stands. The legend explains that in
1841, a Spanish ship needed to stop for water and once ashore, the crew killed
the captain and stole the valuable cargo. The crew could not decide how to share
the loot and several others died in before a decision was made to bury the loot
because of the Indians close by that were also killing off crewmembers. The
treasure was buried on a plot of land known as Hez Copier’s farm and the crew
rowed back to the larger ship and set sail.
Upon returning after a two years, in 1843, the
Indians were gone, however, the treasure was nowhere to be seen.
After about 40 years of hearing of this lost
treasure a group of Spiritualists, gather in Columbia City to try to locate the
fortune. One of the mediums present found the exact location and the digging
began, however, once a portion of some broken stone was removed one of the
diggers fell dead. The excavation was halted. Again, in 1890, the treasure was
the hot topic. The next piece of stone was removed and under it was found human
skeletons, then one of the diggers this time went raving mad and all was
stopped. To this day, no one has even tried to locate this treasure.
