The Lost Gold Mine of the Hudson

by TRISTRAM COFFIN

Anyone familiar with the history of the Hudson Valley knows of the different legends about treasure lost or hidden here. Tales of the pirate Captain Kidd burying treasure somewhere on the banks of the Hudson, or of Conquistadors tunneling for gold near Ellenville or of Old Ninety-Nine's lost cave in the Shawangunks have been told up and down the valley ever since Henry Hudson first saw Indians with gold ornaments during his exploration of the river in 1609.
