Treasure hunting in Georgia is an opportunity for you to chase an adventure. If you have ever dreamed of treasure hunting in Georgia, this article will point you in the right direction.
is a State rich in early American history. And with that history comes stories
of buried caches from the Revolutionary War, hidden loot stolen by robbers, tales
of old silver and gold mines, and much more. You can search for these treasures,
and you may find success, others have, but you need to do the proper research
first before you begin your adventure.
Many stories about Georgia treasures are myths. As the stories have been passed down by storytellers and writers through generations many times, the stories change each time they are told or written. Sometimes the stories are changed on purpose with the intent to throw off any would-be treasure hunters. It is the reason why, before you begin your physical search for a treasure, you should research the story first. Otherwise, you’ll end up most likely chasing after the fictional pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Ideas for Research
best way to get a lead on lost treasures in Georgia is by visiting local
historical societies. Many times, they will have old newspapers archived on
microfiche film. You can scan through the film and look for any stories that
may pertain to a treasure. I know a few treasure hunters that have found
treasures by studying the old newspapers.
example would be to search in the old newspaper archives and to look for
stories about a hermit or a miser dying. Often, that person would hide their
money. The old newspapers printed articles like the above situations.
old magazines and books about Georgia; they often told stories about treasures
hidden in the State. You can still find some of those issues in used bookstores
or at flea markets, estate sales, and auctions.
know older persons in a small town or village? They know everything that has
gone on for years. They love to talk about the past. You may be surprised at
what you learn.
also a good idea to have a reliable metal detector when searching.

Here are possible treasures in Georgia.
Near the area of the intersection of Scarecorn and Talking
Rock Creeks, in Gilmer County, was a gold smelter used by the Indians. There
are stories of several gold caches buried there.
Rock Creek Lake, between Suches and Gaddiston, in Union
County, may hold many hidden treasures secreted in caves by the Cherokee
Indians. The caves were sealed to stop white settlers from finding them.
This brief bit of information I came across should be researched more thoroughly. Apparently, there was $600,000 in gold bullion hidden in a grove of trees on the property of Lindale Mills, a few miles south of Rome, and west of route 411 in Floyd County. Who was it that buried the bullion and where did the bullion come from, don’t know. That’s all the information I have on this story.
If you’re going to be treasure hunting in Georgia
on public land, then be aware of the Federal law regarding removing items from State or Federal properties.
