Where is the lost treasure of the Poverty Island?
Poverty Island is a small island that can be found in
Lake Michigan and even though it is a tiny island in the middle of a lake, there
are at many legends centered around it.
One such legend and maybe the most famous tells of
a schooner that had 5 chest of gold aboard, during the time in which the
Americans were fighting off English soldiers. As the story goes, this 60
schooner wrecked off the Coast of Poverty Island east of Wisconsin. It is
estimated that the gold would be worth 400 million dollars today.
This same legend above is also described in this
story. In this legend there were 4 or 5 chests of gold aboard some time vessel
and was being chased around the island by the French and the chests of gold were
pushed overboard to ensure that the French soldier would not retrieve the gold
in case the ship was overtaken.
Many have searched for the fore mentioned treasure
to no avail; however, a Chicago group is believed to have come very close to
hauling in the lost treasure. As the story goes, the lighthouse keeper’s son,
Carl Jensen watched as the Chicago group lowered a bell into the water and then
drag it back up. He was 11 years old when he began to watch the long and boring
event. However, after three years of this same process, he noticed as a storm
was brewing, the crew beginning to scream, dance, holler, and rejoice. However,
at this time, his parents made him come into the house because of the fierce
storm heading in.
The storm was so intense the ship sank. The crew
survived. No matter, how many have tried to recover this gold, no one has found
the true treasure or even the true legends surrounding this mysterious Poverty
