THE LOST TREASURE OF
RED HILL

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

Where is the lost treasure of Red Hill?



An old prospector, by the name of Adams, had been prospecting just north of Silver City, New Mexico when one day he more or less crawled into town with several gunshot and arrow wounds. He was rushed to the town doctor but there was no hope. While he lay dying he told his friends, who were there that he had been prospecting north of town for several weeks when he saw a red hill in the distance. He traveled to the red hill and was astounded at the gold that lay all over the place. He immediately began to fill his knapsack with the gold nuggets. Once he began grabbing on he could, an arrow struck the ground at his feet. He ran to hide behind some rocks; he glanced around the rocks and saw about 12 Indians. He refused to move from his place of hiding and the Indians keep firing arrows and gunshots at him in an effort to get him out of hiding. He stayed until nightfall when the Indians went on their way. He slowly and cautiously made his way back to Pinos Altos traveling through streams to hide his trail.

Adams passed away within a few hours of reciting his story and was buried in the cemetery. The gold found in his knapsack was essayed to be worth over $7,000. Of course, soon everyone was out searching for this red hill where the gold was abundant. So far, to this day, no one has found the red hill or any of the gold that the old prospector had mentioned while dying.

If you would like to give it a try, you can see what you can find by traveling to Pinos Altos, which is 6 miles north of Silver City on New Mexico Highway 15. However, remember he was north of Silver City, so the gold must be somewhere between Pinos Altos and Silver City. He may have been close to Silver City but since he was traveling by streams to hide his trail Pinos Altos may have been the way he had to go.
