Are you looking for a treasure to find? Would you be happy with some Spanish gold? Do you live in Arkansas? Well if you do, you may want to do a little searching for a sealed up cave said to hold the gold, silver and jewels that De Soto had with him when he passed through the area.
In the 1500’s Hernando de Soto and six hundred men traveled into the area that is now Arkansas during an exploration of the “New World”. With them they carried gold and silver and jewels that they had found and/or pilfered along the way.
They had been suffering losses due to hostile Indians (image that) and illness of the men so when they reached Brushy Creek just south of present day Berryville they decided to hide their heavy cargo and return for it at a later date. That’s right, they supposedly never returned to retrieve their treasure.
This is about all of the information I have on this one, Spanish treasure, sealed cave near a creek and just south of Berryville, Arkansas. If it helps in your research any, De Soto died in Arkansas in 1542. The information indicates he died on the banks of the Mississippi River at the present day location of Lake Village, Arkansas.
I guess it would be hard to return for your treasure if you didn’t live to make the return trip. This could be a pretty good lead to check out.
