Treasure: Cimarron, New Mexico

Recommended Posts

A group of freighters while traveling along the Santa Fe Trail to Independence, Missouri a group were attacked just three days into their trip.  The freighters were carrying 25 bags of gold coins worth about $150,000. Seeing the imminent attack the men buried the gold somewhere between Ute Park and Cimarron, New Mexico in Colfax County. Only one of the men survived the attack to tell the story. He was severely wounded, and he died just a few days later. The survivor on his deathbed said that the treasure trove was buried in an area with three large rocks, one of which was half  the size of a house.”
