Back to Rockingham County... I think old "places" by the Shenandoah River are "WORTHY of note"; MANY "legends" abound...

One legend by the Shenandoah River is the Gov. Spotswood of Virginia & his Knights of the Golden Horseshoe burying a bottle with a note in it claiming ALL of the land (Shenandoah Valley) for the King of England... Native Ppl were NOT amused.
It was stated to have been buried across the Shenandoah River (Bank) that is part of Rt. 33, Business, going through the BIZ section of Elkton, and across the current bridge (they "forded the river", back then). NEVER been found; COULD be that the Native Ppl took it... dunno.

ANOTHER legend is that Civil War Cannons with GOLD coins in the barrels, plugged & sealed... were buried by the banks of the Shenandoah River; NONE found to MY knowledge.
