Cement, Oklahoma, a playground for outlaws

Is he squinting like the face in the rock?

Come on, you do see the face in the rock don't you??

Cement, Oklahoma has been written about many times in books and magazines and now here in this prestigious blog. That wasn’t too much of a shameless plug was it?

If you are from Oklahoma then you have no doubt heard of and maybe even driven to Cement to take a look around. For some of us, we have looked a little closer and will continue to look thanks to a series of private contracts.

With that said, I thought I might let our readers who haven’t heard of Cement, OK in on one of the worst kept secrets in Oklahoma. The area around Cement, Oklahoma was well known to many outlaw gangs including the infamous Frank and Jesse James. Frank James himself spent time in the area during the early 1900’s looking for treasures that he and Jesse had hidden and he even recovered a couple. It also looks like he left a few behind for us!

The now famous copper map or “wolf map” as the KGC people like to refer to it, was found near Cement along with some small gold bars, a watch, a few coins and some other items. If you have been to any of the previous annual meetings then you have undoubtedly seen this watch since the owner comes every year and is gracious enough to share this gem with us. It was found on a small hill known as Buzzard’s Roost. A hill that we all may get to visit during this year’s annual meeting providing the weather is right and the oil fields cooperate.

There are treasure signs galore in this area including those left behind by the outlaws and also the Mexicans and Spanish before them. From the clues in this area you can be lead southwest to even more clues near and in the Wichita Mountain range. There have also been clues found in the mountain range that will lead you to the area around Cement. It’s just one big circle of treasure clues!

I have included a few photos of some of the things that can be found in the area but unfortunately, since these came from treasure sites we are actively working I cannot disclose the exact location of where they are. You understand don’t you? :~)

Sometime in the near future we hope to write more about this location and some of the things that have been and are being found.

Did you remember that this year’s annual meeting is going to be held in Cement, OK?

Maybe J is just looking at you hopeing you don't give this location away with your camera!LOL

If this unselfish post doesn't get your TH blood boiling its time to find a new hobby!

That last pic is a new one for me. It really looks as if it was carved by the same person as the other one.

I have been fortunate enough to have seen some of the treasure clues, but understanding them and following them to the next one is another story. Luckily we have a few of the more seasoned hunters that are willing to pass on a bone or two to the curious and sincere newbies. This is one of the reasons that I will be there with "bells on " to support the gathering in Cement on September 18th, 2010 !

Thanks for a great post!
