    Hey. before you have me banned for life, listen up. All along your western border there are caves, many remote and unexplored. I am not sure about treasure tales, but I would imagine that those caves have been used, visited and some occupied for thousands of years. I know you have an interest in caches and you may actually find one. The Vikings could and probably did visit your entire state and the Appalacian Trail runs right through there. There have to be great artifacts to find. I grew up in central Texas exploring caves in my hippy days and I have been in your state on part of the App. Trail. If you decide to go please take someone with you. It is still very rugged in places. Good luck on your quest and remember, anything can be hidden in the caves. Stolen goods, things taken by Indians and stored, travelers along the trail that didn't make it, Trail bandit's caches, well anything. Most people hike the trail and that's it. You will have to get out in the forest and look. Caves are at the bottom of hills, sides of hills, tops of hills. Follow the game trails, not the people trails and once again, best wishes.

    Bank Robbery and Lost Treasure in Winsted Connecticut


    describes a bank robbery that occurred in Winsted, Connecticut in November 1861. The robbers made a clean get-away but from stories told by one of the alleged robbers who died in prison they buried some of the loot west of Winsted, and they never recovered any of it when they all died in prison.For several days before the robbery some strange men were seen at the site of a cave later renamed “RobbersCave” on the road leading toTorrington. The cave itself is located on the cliffs behind the former Emission Test Center that was formed by a tumulus of boulders at the bottom of the cliff.

    GOOGLE Connecticut Treasure Caves you may find more.

    Or research in reverse:

    stories (legends) linked to them

    Hmmmm.. last I heard, The Great State of Connecticut taxed all the good ones out of existence & closed the rest for not paying back taxes......
