Mississippi Lost Treasure

Mississippi lost treasure sites are listed on this page. 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.

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

Natchez Trace

This 450 mile trail connected Natchez, located on the Mississippi River, to Nashville Tennessee. At the time the French dominated the area in the early 1700's, this trail was known as the Chickasaw-Choctaw trail. The road was a very heavily traveled road in the southwest. There are sure to be many dropped, or discarded relics along this old road.

The Old Town of Meridian

Was located near present day Meridian Rte 45. This old civil war town, which no longer exists, was a major confederate supply depot. Many old relics may be here.

Black Hawk

Located approximately thirty miles south of Natchez. Near Black Hawk, on the east bank of the Mississippi River, gold coins have been found. They may have come from the steamboat Ben Sheerod, that sank after catching fire in 1837. It was carrying $75,000 in gold. Get searching! There could be more.

Holly Springs

Located on rte 78. $80,000 in gold coins was buried by a Union paymaster during the Civil War. Supposedly the cache was buried near the towns railroad station. During a battle with the Confederates, the paymaster was killed, and the coins were never found.


Located on State route 55. A Civil War treasure consisting of gold and silver coins is buried here.

Understand The Laws Regarding Digging On State Lands

The Antiquities Act of 1906 and the ARPA  (Archaeology Resources Protection Act)laws explain why you cannot remove artifacts from State or Federal lands that are more than 100 years old.

Digging for a treasure that is more than 100 years old comes under the protection of these two laws. But remember, the laws only pertain to State and Federal lands. Know the law before you dig.

Mississippi lost treasures may be located in ghost towns.
