    Crown Point, Lake Champlain

    On Crown Point is a ruin of a fort that had been erected by Lord Amherst in 1731.It was said when the French evacuated the area ,that they buried money and bullionin a well, 90 feet down, in the northwestern corner of the bastion. While they had expected to retreive the cache at a later time , this didnt happen. Over the years countless attempts have been made to find the treasure, but so far, no luck. About fifty years ago, a large group of men,undertook the clearing of the site and searched, but still no gold. Maybe there is gold to be found yet, along with alot of great relics!
