Buried Treasure In Georgia

Have you ever dreamed of locating buried treasure in Georgia?br>
Stories of plantation treasures, island treasures, treasure buried by outlaws, and even pirates have been told and written about being hidden in the State of Georgia. Even Civil War treasure stories have been rumored to be another path to follow for the treasure seeker.

On this page I have posted a few stories about buried treasures in Georgia. They are brief because it is the only information that I have regarding the stories. So it’s important that you research the stories further if you plan on searching for any or all of these treasures.

 A good place to start is on the Internet. Also check with the historical societies of the areas you will be searching in. The National Archives in Washington D.C. is another research center at your disposal. You can search the archives online, or visit the center in D.C.

Finding any buried treasure starts with sufficient research. It is the most important element to locating a treasure. Every professional treasure hunter knows this, and would never move forward in a treasure search without the proper research.
