$340 Million in Buried Treasure is Waiting to Be Found in Texas
They say that if you really apply yourself and work hard, you can get ahead in life. Personally, I would rather stumble backwards into money, but my whole "Lottery Retirement" plan doesn't seem to be working out. Since I have no rich relatives who like me enough to put me in their will, it looks like I only have one option left: Treasure hunting.
Luckily, there's loads of treasure scattered around the world. In fact, there's rumored to be countless millions in Spanish gold hidden somewhere near Shreveport! That's "buy-your-own-pirate-ship" money right there! As impressive as that is, it's nothing compared to the rumored-riches just waiting to be found in Texas!
According to Texas Hill Country, there are nearly 230 treasure sites in Texas - the most of any state in the country! When you total up the suspected value of the all, you get an astounding $340 Million! With so many legends of buried booty, it can be easy to lose track. With the help of Texas news-giant KSAT, I've listed the 8 biggest treasure hauls in the entire state below.
Before you ask, no - I'm not looking for a "finder's fee" if you strike gold on your treasure hunt. That being said, I wouldn't say no to a cruise around the Gulf of Mexico on your new superyacht once you cash in.
