Where is the lost wash pot treasure of Missouri Falls?
In 1900, Arthur C. White came to Montgomery County,
Arkansas with a map to a treasure. No one living in the area had ever heard of
any treasure in these parts and Mr. White did not say a word about how he was in
possession of the map and if he knew who or when the treasure was buried. He did
give the account that two wash pots were buried filled with gold. One wash pot
had $100,000 and the other is believed to have $60,000. Today, this amount of
gold would be worth a considerable amount more.
Mr. White followed the directions on his waybill or
map and did find the wash pot that held $100,000. He could not find the other
wash pot which was suppose to have been buried close by however, not in the same
exact spot. He left with the treasure he had found and never came in search of
the other wash pot.
It is believed that the wash pot containing the
$60,000 is still buried somewhere close by Missouri Falls. Missouri Falls is
around 30 miles west of Hot Springs where the Little Missouri River flows. Here
you will find Missouri Falls and maybe if you bring along your Geiger counter
and a shovel you may find the wash pot full of gold on today’s market worth a
quarter of a million dollars.
