Where is Captain Kidd's treasure?



As the legend of Captain Kidd’s treasure has been passed down from generation to generation since the early 19th century it has grown into a treasure hunter’s quest. According, to the legend or story of Temple and Sheldon from 1875, Captain Kidd and his crew of fierce pirates went up the Connecticut River in search of a place to bury their stolen gold. They wanted to find the perfect spot that would be easily recognizable by them but also very secluded. Somewhere near or on Clarke’s Island in Northfield, Massachusetts, close to the upper end of Pine Meadow, is believed to be the spot.

Now, the story goes even deeper for those wishing to find this hidden treasure. Captain Kidd and his crew drew lots to see which one of them would be killed, so their body could lie upon the chest of gold, no one knows who lost the draw.

Now, the tricky part, the legend states that to find the gold and be able to retrieve it you must locate the exact spot when the moon is full and directly overhead. You will have to have three people in your party of treasure seekers, form a triangle around the spot and work one at a time in silence until you unbury the treasure. However, one spoken word will break the charm.

Now, if you are lucky enough to find the hidden treasure, you had better be sure that no one even whispers a sigh of relief, or the treasure will not be found.
