Maine lost treasure sites are listed on this page. This State is known for it's pirate treasure. You can locate treasures, others have. But you will need to follow up on research. I cannot promise that this information is completely accurate. As treasure tales go, especially pirate treasure stories, many times the information passed down through the years is inaccurate.

This information should be researched through other means as well. Never rely on one piece of information about a treasure story you are researching. Use multiple research tools.
