THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Where are some more lost treasures in Iowa?



Iowa has many treasures hidden, buried, and lost from as far back as the cowboy and Indian days to the roaring 20’s, through the gold rush era and even more recent.

Going on a treasure hunting adventure would be a great way to explore Iowa and its beautiful countryside and the thought of finding one of the treasures listed below would top of the vacation.

There is suppose to be buried treasure in Cold Water Cave, which is 25 miles from Decorah on the Gaul farm, which was built in 1935, or so the legend goes.

A miner by the name of Tom Kelly buried his gold and valuables in a chest somewhere near Kelly’s Bluff in Dubuque. His fortune is estimated to be worth around $200,000. Another tale tells of $300,000 of silver and gold is buried behind Saint Raphael’s Roman Catholic Church in downtown Dubuque.

Gold nuggets were buried in three one-gallon ceramic jugs close to Eddyville just north of the cemetery. This is the spot that three miners hid their gold. One of the trio was killed and as the story goes; his body was burned and buried in the exact spot of the buried gold nuggets. In 1920, a skull was found in the vicinity that helps to add more credibility to the tale.

It is believed by the words from an old Indian that in 1842 an army payroll wagon was robbed and the gold coins were buried close by Guttenburg along Miner’s Creek.

In 1957, a park worker found several hundred American silver dollars in Stone Park in Woodbury County. The stories are that there are several different treasures hidden in the park, which was loot from pirates.
