    Ever heard of the Treasure Pond?

    Located near the Florida/ Georgia Line, I just read about it in a magazine from 1956... A very detailed article. At that time it was a scum covered pond, for all I know it could now be dry land or a Burger King... Right now I am just trying to find out how well known this Treasure Legend is. Thanks for any info...Tom

    Yep. I believe the story you are referring to is about Yarber Pond. A band of Seminole Indians were being pursued by Andrew Jackson's militia and ditched the gold coins they had stolen from slaughtered settlers.

    Yarber Pond is located in Jackson county near the Chattahoochee river and Neals Landing on the Florida-Georgia border.

    Yes, you are absolutely correct... It was estimated in 1956 to be worth over $90,000 in gold and silver coins. If I lived in that area I would at least try to find the 2 encampments of the 2 men who tried to salvage it back in the 1930s and '40s. Thanks, Tom

    Hey Tom. I've read about it before but never read anything much about the people who tried to salvage it. What magazine was that in? Or what more does it say about any successful expeditions? What year did people look for it? I've always wondered. Any info would be interesting to hear thanks!
