Often I am asked if metal detectors should be used when searching for buried treasures. My answer is always the same.

Yes. However, do not purchase an expensive detector.

Too many times people new to treasure hunting spend more than they should on their first metal detector. You can buy a reliable detector for a few hundred dollars.

Are you interested in a metal detector or accessories?”

Good luck! And have fun in your search for Alabama lost treasure.

Fort Mims – State route 59, a few miles from Tensaw in Baldwin CountyThis Fort was built by the local settlers in 1813 as protection from the Indians. There were approximately 100 buildings. The Fort was soon attacked and almost all of the settlers were murdered. A few survivors stated that some of the sellers, knowing of an impending attack, had buried their money before the raid.

The McGillivray Plantation – near County 47 a few miles north Wetumpka CountyThis plantation dates back to the middle 1800’s. It was destroyed by an Indian attack. It has been rumored that a cache of silver and gold coins are buried there.

Fort Morgan – on Mobile Point approximately twenty miles west of Gulf Shores on State 180.Seven Spanish ships from a fleet of thirteen went down in a storm near this Fort. Treasure and artifacts have been located on the beach near there.

Jean Lafitte the pirate may have buried gold coins on a beach in Bayou la Batre.

The Ghost Town of Old Cahaba located on route 22 approximately 14 miles southwest of Selma, was used as a Confederate Fort during the Civil War. It was abandoned in 1870. This would be a nice area to use a metal detector in.

Confederate Gold and Silver was buried approximately 4 miles north of Athens.  Apparently there were 2 huge metal containers filled with gold and silver buried by the Confederates as they fled the Union Army. the treasure was buried about half mile from a stream crossing.
