So lately I've been Indiana Jonesin, looking up lost treasures to be found.

For instance, near me in Illinois, USA, there's supposedly gold hidden in a place called the Sweetin Mansion.

Guy built a mansion around the time of the American Civil War. When the war broke out, he didn't trust banks to hold his earnings, and so hid his stash somewhere on his property. Later on he broke his neck horseback riding and his stash was never recovered.

Folklore says his stash is in a cave guarded by ghosts and rattlesnakes.

I'm thinkin about checking it out.

What treasure legends are around you?

It's not exactly local, but I've heard a lot of people talk about Confederate stashes of gold and money that get dug up fairly regularly in the path of Sherman's March to the Sea.

There was a very successful outlaw gang in Florida 100 years ago and a lot of their money was supposedly stashed away in the swamps and/or woodlands. I suspect a lot of people who would look have been deterred by the dangers and general unpleasantness. And maybe I just hate fun, but I'm pretty sure that most outlaws who came into a lot of money and kept doing outlaw shit for years on end probably just spent what they could hold on to and gave away what they couldn't for good will and favors.

Supposedly Jean Lafitte hid a great treasure in the swamps south of New Orleans that nobody ever found, but with the coastal erosion, I wonder how much is findable anyway

Here in Arizona we have a large mountain range that separates the inhabited phoenix metropolitan area from uninhabited desert wilderness called the Superstition mountains. Legend has it a dutch miner found a huge vein of gold and hid his stash somewhere in the mountain range. I have heard different versions of the story but usually people say he told his sons where it was on their deathbed, but they could never find it, or that he died before telling them the directions, or whatever. I've hiked around there a few times but never found any treasure. People been lookin for years though for the lost dutchman's treasure.

A lot of people die out there. Mostly from the terrain and elements, but a lot of murders too.
