Lost Treasure Legends: Louisiana

Go on a real treasure hunt in Louisiana to find lost treasure!!!

The LaBleau Plantation Treasure
The pirate Jean LaFitte and his band used a barn on the old LeBleau Plantation, 5 miles west of the town of Iowa, Louisiana, as a meeting place. Legends also say that they buried treasure here that was never recovered.

The Treasure at Grand Coteau
Around 1800, the wealthy Gabriel Fuselier de la Claire built a plantation home at Grand Coteau. During the Civil War his grandson buried a fortune worth $500,000. Union troops burned the plantation and the cache was never recovered.
