Treasure Hunt

“It’s not buried treasure’s job to be we where we look. It’s the treasure hunter’s job to go find it.”

Leather coin pouch I found while working on a DEC trail crew in 1 the summer of 1984. The coin pouch was buried in the dirt under what had been the deacon’s log of the old Livingston Point lean-to, between the Flowed Lands & Livingston Pond. It contained wheat pennies & Buffalo nickels totaling 62 cents. The most recent coin date in the pouch was 1938.


“FM Bull” Saranac Lake bottle I found while bottle diving in the Saranac River. According to Historic Saranac Lake Local Wiki – FM Bull was a Civil War veteran, pharmacist/businessman & one of the four original Saranac Lake Village trustees. The bottle has a wood/glass float stopper inside it. It has been dated to circa the late 1880’s. To date, it is the only one of its kind known to exist. It currently sits on display as part of Historic Saranac Lake Museum’s pharmacy collection.
