    Legend of Redbone Cave, Muscle Shoals, AL

    When the Indians ruled the land all over Alabama back in 1720, the Chickasaw Indians took a trapper prisoner. The white trapper was placed in a cave for a short period of time. The cave is said to be Redbone Cave which can be found on the north bank of the Tennessee River close to Muscle Shoals in Colbert County.

    While the trapper was held in the cave, as he reported later, the cave was full of gold and silver bars that went from the floor of the cave to the ceiling, along with chests overloaded with golden figurines, jewels, and gold coins.

    A couple of finds have been discovered throughout the region and the quest for this treasure increased with each of these discoveries.

    Close by the Natchez Trace Bridge in Colbert County, in 1971, two men discovered a gold ingot about the size of a brick, a farmer working a field south of Smithsonia in Lauderdale County found a gold bar that had either Indian or Spanish markings. Many people believe that both of these discoveries were from the treasure in Redbone Cave; however, there are many others that believe they came from different sources.

    If there have been any other finds no one is talking about them. As far, as anyone can tell, the treasure the trapper saw back in 1720 is still hidden away in Redbone Cave.

    That would be at The Rockpile located on the TVA reservation at the foot of Wilson Dam on the Colbert side...Truth is if there is a Redbone Cave it's probably underneath the Tenn River now.
