Where is the lost Shipp Pond gold?



Shipp Pond is actually a natural lake that can be found between Brooklyn and Castleberry, Alabama.

In the 1950 edition of “The Brewton Standard”, an article reports that gold is hidden in Shipp Pond. The article was written by Edley Franklin.

During the Civil War, everyone knows that valuables including gold were hidden away from the enemy troops. In some cases, valuables were retrieved after the war; however, many were not due to death or even landmark changes.

The legend is that gold was hidden in Shipp Pond in 1862 because of this very reason. The story goes, that a man driving a bubby placed a wooden box or small chest on what was called a billy ( four short logs tied together creating a small raft)He began maneuvering the billy out into the pond toward a very tall dead pine tree on the other side of the pond. In the middle of the pond, he stopped and lowered the box into the water close beside the billy. He dropped the box quietly into the pond. The man that placed the box into the pond was Henchie Warren who was the owner of the Warren Plantation. He is buried on the property. It is believed the reason the gold was never retrieved is the bottom of Shipp Pond is a soft, black mud that of course will absorb anything heavy at a while. The object will slowly sink into the mud and settle there.

As far as anyone knows, the wooden box or chest is still at the bottom of Shipp Pond waiting to be recovered from the thick mud.
