Where is the Spring Canyon Treasure?



Spring Canyon, Utah at one time was home to several different mining towns including one called Standardville. This town once stood about five miles west of the present day town of Helper. This small town was home to miners and their family that worked for the F.A. Sweet coalmine.

The story of the lost treasure is not one of a lost mine, banditos, or outlaws of any kind. This treasure tale is about a young little girl that became bored. A young girl living with her family in Standardville, started searching around the home for something new to play with, she came upon an old cigar box in her father’s bureau drawer.

Her home was close by the office and billiard hall. Not far from this area, were a few 2-inch pipes protruding out of the ground. These were not capped which was pretty normal for these days.

The little girl took the cigar box outside and pried it open with an old nail she found lying around outside. Once she opened the cigar box inside she found newly minted silver dollars. No one has ever stated the amount of silver dollars in the cigar box.

She became bored with just playing with the coins, walked over to one of the protruding pipes, and dropped them one by one down the protruding pipe until they were all gone.

When her father found the cigar box, he asked every member of the family what had happened to the box. Finally, the little girl told her father and went to show him which pipe she had dropped the coins into. However, once arriving at the pipes, the little girl could not remember which pipe she had dropped the coins into. To this day, the coins are still there even though the town has been destroyed.
