Description

This tells of some of the history of the hidden treasure found on Neahkahnie Mountain. In 1875, early settler, Will Snyder was plowing the meadow near the beach. His plow suddenly jammed on the edge of a boulder. He dug it up and found an inscription on it , a large "D" and "E" and also an arrow with feathered heft. According to J. Frank Dobie and other experts on lost treasures, these were the very signs buccaneers used to store and hide their dub loons. Details found in Thomas Vaughn's diary in 1852, Indians had told him of the burying of the treasue.
