Buried Treasure In Connecticut

Buried treasure in Connecticut do exist.

As a young boy I dreamed of some day locating a treasure buried by a pirate. I read books about pirates, and one of my favorites was “Treasure Island.” Perhaps you dreamed as I did. Maybe you are still dreaming. If so, you live in a State that has been known to be frequented by many pirates.

Treasures in, and around Connecticut have been located. Pirate ships have been found off it's coasts. And it has been rumored that many more such treasures are still waiting to be located.

Not only are there pirate treasures, but treasures hidden by wealthy merchants, as well as robbers, and even the occasional hermit are buried in this State. But before you head out to search for one, it would be wise to do some research on the treasure you are interested in.

Professional treasure hunters, the ones who have located treasures of all kinds, never venture far without first arming themselves with loads of information. They know that as stories are passed down through generations, that the stories change, and to search for a treasure based on one piece of information, will likely lead to failure. I have given you brief stories on this page regarding buried treasures in your State. However, you need to research them further. Use the Internet, visit historical societies, and the archives, expand your knowledge beyond what I have listed here. Knowledge is powerful, especially when it comes to treasure hunting.
