    Re: Lost Pharohas Cave Treasure

    May I ask what the source is on this story? An old book, news paper? I don't live far from there but I need more info before I can go scrounging up maps and so on.

    I found the mountain on google earth but that is all. I really need to track genealogy and and find the site of the farm before I would consider giving this story any credibility.

    all I know is it was a Bunch of Pages from an old
    papeback book on treasure tales.
    Cover was missing, & pages were crumbling.
    but I think
    from some of the stories it was early 60's

    Well thanks for the reply, it is a really cool story and frankly kinda peeks my interest. I studied anthropology in school so this one caught my eye.

    I have looked for this cave several times, my theory is that the story was at least partially made up but possibly the author actually put something there, fake story to go along with real gold, just a theory. I think the odds of finding a true cave there are slim(granite?), but what there is, are cliffs and a large boulder field. In that there are several nice caverns that would make an excellent treasure cave. I've done a fairly extensive search and have yet to come up with any gold, I've seen more (small) bats and snakes and good places to hurt myself. Going by my theory, the story suggests the entrance has been closed off, hidden. Any ideas on how I would find it, any hidden clues in the story? As a previous post says, I also would really like to know who wrote this and what book it's from. Anybody have anything?

    Jrsmith this story is very interesting I can’t find any source for the actual original book and maybe the legend was cooked up after the mountain was given its name that would make sense but I still ask certain questions like why was it given the name pharaoh mountain for what reason it could have been any name but why something related to Egypt and another thing is that when I was looking at old maps of the area from the 1800s I did find a homestead under the name Johnson in proximity to the town of Ticonderoga and pharaoh mountain this is a common last name so it may mean nothing but it still makes me think and wonder could the legend be true

    Within about ten miles, there is Johnson pond, brook, and road, along with Indian ridge. If I were to expand my search to include any of that I think it would become an impossibly large area to cover. It would certainly be nice if the story was a bit more solid or had some other evidence such as the original “gold disk”. I vaguely remember reading something about the pharaoh name being similar to the Indian name for the mountain. I’ve been there several times but mostly concentrated on an area maybe 300’ by 1/2 mile based on there being a lot of rock overhangs and boulders. Some of the best caverns there are well hidden, these are not legitimate caves but if you really look for them there are cool little caverns there. Whether there is any gold in any of them I have no idea. Unless I come up with a brilliant idea or new information I probably won’t go back until fall when the bugs aren’t so bad. One of my favorite things there was about a 10x10 cavern where if I moved some rocks around I could drop into a lower level that was about 5x20’
