Buried Treasure In Alabama

Buried treasure in Alabama do exist. I have listed a few areas that have been rumored to hold treasures.

However, I cannot promise that this information is completely accurate. As treasure tales go, because they have been passed down through many years, certain elements of the lost treasure story may have been altered, either intentionally or otherwise.

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.

A good place to start is on the Internet. Also check with the historical societies of the areas you will be searching in.

In the town of Fort Payne it has been rumored that a wealthy businessman, John Willismith, before he died buried $100,000 of gold. Mr. Willismith owned most of the town. So the gold could have been buried anywhere, or perhaps in different locations.

Henry Nunez was the operator of a ferry during the Civil War, on the Perdido River. Supposedly, Nunez buried a treasure of approximately $200,000 somewhere near a point where route 90 crosses the river. The treasure may be buried near what used to be his house on the Alabama side of the river.

Near Athens there may be a Confederate treasure. Apparently in 1865, $100,000 of gold and silver was put into two large metal boxes by Confederate troops, and then thrown into the swamp. The troops were trying to keep the gold and silver away from Union soldiers.

Demopolis is an abandoned town on the Tombigbee River, near the intersection of rout 43, and 80. Near Demopolis is an area named White Bluff. The area was founded by exiled followers of Napoleon Bonaparte in the early 1800's.  The area was then abandoned around 1830. It was then settled by wealthy plantation owners and then vacated around 1860. buried treasures may be here.
