Where are the lost treasures of Oklahoma?
When most people hear the word Oklahoma, they think
about the Oklahoma Land Run, cowboys and Indians, and more recently the oil
boom, however, they do not even realize that there are many treasures that were
lost throughout history in the state of Oklahoma.
Some of the lost treasures have no exact location;
the owners just know that while traveling through the Oklahoma territory their
treasures disappeared. One such incident is the story of an Atoka cattleman. All
of his gold was lost in Oklahoma most likely close to Atoka. Whether he buried
his gold or in fact lost the gold, no one knows for sure.
Other stories are centered about outlaws such as
the silver coins that were buried in Le Flore County on the Holsum Valley road.
The legend states that around half a bushel of silver coins was hidden by
bandits somewhere along the roadside.
More outlaws gangs as tales were told, buried their stolen loot at what is now
Roman Nose State Park close to Watonga in Blaine County. More outlaws were
inclined to hide their loot in Robber’s Cave State Park close to Wilburton in
None of the names of the outlaws has been recorded but the whereabouts of their
treasures have been passed down from generation to generation with the hopes
that someone will be lucky enough to find these lost treasures. Some of the most
popular tales include hidden treasure nearby Boswell along Boggy Creek, in the
ghost town of Ingalls east of Stillwater, and stolen treasure hidden around
Kenton in Cimarron County.
Then there were bank robberies such as the one
where $50,000 in gold coins was stolen. The outlaw was caught and before he was
hanged for his crime he have directions for where he buried the gold coins. No
one has ever found the gold coins even after using his directions, which puts
the coins close to Rattan at Seven Devil Mountain.
Famous outlaws have also buried or hidden their
ill-gotten gains in the state of Oklahoma. Pretty Boy Floyd’s treasures are
hidden close to Sallisaw in Sequoyah County. The Dalton gang had no particular
spot for hiding their loot however, it is rumored that they normally used caves
and one of the favorites were the caves near Sand Springs.
