THE LOST TREASURE OF
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is the lost treasure of Captain Keiff?
Captain Keiff was considered an old salvager that lived
on Cliff Island, Maine. He was a bit of a loner and lived in a log hut close to
the ocean. He did not have a job as most people; he would rummage through old
shipwrecks to find valuable items to sell. During this time, any shipwreck was
fair game and you could sell anything found without any questions asked as to
where they were found.
Since there were not many shipwrecks occurring and
Captain Keiff needed shipwrecks in order to survive, he devised a way to cause
the ships to wreck. He would tie a lantern around the neck of his horse and ride
up and down the shoreline when he noticed ships on the horizon.
The incoming ships would be guided to shore by his
lantern and would end up wrecking on the ledges and reefs that surrounded this
small island. He would then go out to the ship and kill any survivors. Then the
ship and all of its belongings was his for the taking.
He did this scandalous living for many years and
made a large fortune for himself. He was always afraid others were as unhanded
as he was and as the legend goes, he buried much of his finds nearby his hut on
Cliff Island. He never married and lived out his life alone on Cliff Island. No
one knows where he buried the treasures but today there is an area on Cliff
Island named Keiffs Garden, which might be the actual location of his home. For
treasure seekers, this would be a great place to visit with a metal detector;
however, you will more than likely have to get permission before searching on
the island or in Keiffs Garden.
