Where is the lost treasure of the Wells Fargo Robberies?



Arizona along with many western states in the US has stories to tell about lost, stolen, or buried treasure. Many of these come from days when Indians roamed the plains, cattle rustlers were busy, trains were just beginning to dot the countryside with gold shipments from the newly found gold mines in the west and bandits robbing stagecoaches.

One such story comes out of Gillett, Arizona. Gillett, Arizona at one time a milling town for the Tip Top Mine, which was started in 1876. Of course, Gillett, along with many western towns of the old west was full of violence and lawlessness.

The blacksmith in the town of town was Henry Seymour, who had a dark side. He enjoyed robbing Wells Fargo Stagecoaches on the outskirts of town. In the year 1882 alone, he held up three different stagecoaches and took in a haul of $69,000. No one knew about Henry’s dark side, however, many had their suspicious, which grew even more when he used some of his ill-gotten gain in poker game at the local saloon.

He was then watched a bit closer and on his fourth attempt of robbery in 1882 was caught. Henry was sent to prison. He never told a soul where the money was hidden. After his release, he left Gillett, never to return.

Today, the town of Gillett is long forgotten along with the Wells Fargo loot that he stole so many years ago. As far as anyone knows, the money is still hidden exactly where Henry hid it in 1882. Only a few crumbling buildings remain of this rip roaring town.

If you are ever in the area of Gillett, Arizona, you may wish to take along a shovel. Who knows, you may be the one to find this buried treasure.
