    So far I have been unable to find online the locations of the original wooden structures in liberty. Wondering if anyone else has solved that.

    Kinda curious where they were in relation to Manions store and Ottos Hilligs studio

    When searching for buried treasures, also, search for single coins and jewels.

    Enough for now.
    On page 31 of this welcome to liberty webbook. It talks about the otto Hillig Treasure. At the end of the page it mentions that the clues are scattered throughout. So that might explain that placement of the Grady horse comment.

    Iíve been in contact with the Cornell professor she said itís very possible, that Nazi spyís were in New York and that idea they were trying to blow up the bridge is also very possible. She also said that when Nazis were caught it was kept very hush hush. So the idea that these two guys killed some and it was kept quiet is also very possible.

    Hillig died September 12, 1954, having sold his business in 1947. He left an estate of $100,000 divided between eleven churches, six Masonic lodges, eighteen relatives and twenty-five friends. Later, the castle was largely destroyed by vandals, but there still remain as memorials, a beautiful stained glass window in the Lutheran Church in Liberty and a large boulder located on the Liberty Golf Course with a plaque which recalls the start of his trans-Atlantic flight.



    Above is an excerpt from sullivan county history and speaks of a plague...hmmm

    You are very close at number one, the plague is a spot which you should plot, go in and eat, and count the feet, from there to here, let's have a beer

    I am not familiar with the Big G course but is there a clubhouse with a bar? Could this be the reference of the plague above?

    The Masonic lodges was interesting. I have a co worker whoís grandfather was a mason and she gave me some insight into how they do things. Well kind of.

    Having been Born & raised upstate NY for 50 + years I've never heard any rumors of this 'Catskill Nazi gold'....But I've heard ( from some old timers) who speak of a German U boat spotted in the Hudson River(at Poughkeepsie) during WW2. (while FDR was alive) If true, my guess would be.A possible recon of President FDRs home in Hyde Park NY.(which is located just 1/2 mile East of the Hudson river ). And just a few miles N. of Poughkeepsie.
