Mulberry Plantation

In 1714, the house at Mulberry Plantation, located in South Carolina, was built on top of a cellar fort, complete with slits for firing built right into the foundation walls. It's one of the earliest plantations in the United States. During the Yamassee War (1715-1716) colonists fled to the fortification for safety, taking their valuables with them. But none of those valuables are in question in the treasure that's supposedly buried here. Instead, a renegade band of American Indians supposedly buried gold and silver somewhere on or near this site. The treasure trove in its entirety has never been located.
