Where is the lost treasure of Hermitís Island?



Hermitís Island can be found in Lake Superior off the shoreline of Wisconsin. There are many tales of treasures associated with this unique island in the middle of the Great Lakes.

First in 1868, a man by the name of Frederick Prentice began operating a quarry on Bass, Stockton and Hermit Islands. Prentice had a large fortune by 1890, which ranged anywhere from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars all according to who told you the tale. He built a house on Hermit Island close by the quarry, which was called by locals the ďCedar Bark LodgeĒ. He remained on the island and lived alone until the day of his death. When he did pass away, the search began for his fortune. Prentice did not have a bank account or relatives to give his money to before he died, so it is assumed that since nothing was found in his that he must have hidden his fortune somewhere on Hermit Island.

Another person a hermit of sorts was William Wilson who was a rich barrel maker. He moved to Hermit Island shortly after Prentice died. He took $90,000 with him, built a small cabin and remained there alone until his death in 1861.It is believed he also hid his fortune on Hermit Island in an area just northeast of his cabin.

One last person known to have been very rich when they arrived to Hermit Island but when they left this world none of the fortune was found is a stranger that moved into an abandoned cabin. He only left to purchase supplies and used Mexican gold and silver coins to pay for anything he bought. When he passed away all that was found was one sack with 44 silver dollars. Inside an old clock a small amount of gold coins were found. Since, there were coins hidden in the clock many believe he also hid treasure on the island.
