Buried Treasure In Ohio
Six Places To Search

Buried treasure in Ohio has been documented throughout the State. You can locate them. Other's have. However, before you begin your search for lost treasure, there are a few things you need to do. The first is doing the research. The second important part to locating treasure is to purchase a metal detector if you do not already own one.

In regards to research, information is the key. The more knowledge you have about any treasure, the better your chances of locating one. The stories in this article will get you started, however, it may not be enough.

Begin your research on the Internet. The Internet is a great tool to have. You can visit archives, museums, and historical societies regarding any subject. Visiting the historical societies of the area you are searching in is also a good idea. Ask questions, and follow up on any lead pertaining to your treasure search. There is an old saying that, “knowledge is power.” That is no more the truth than when you are searching for hidden treasure.

Next, if you do not own a detector, it’s a good idea to purchase one. There is no need to spend thousands of dollars for a high end detector. The more expensive models with all of the bells and whistles are most often very complicated for the new user. Spend between $325 and $450 for a new detector, read and study the owners manual, and learn how to use it properly. If you do, you will find as many items as the person using a more expensive model. Lost treasures are out there, just waiting to be found. With the right tools you can locate one as well.
