Back In Time: The Lost Gold of Oklahoma

Back In Time looks into the legends of lost treasure thought to be buried in the southwest corner of Oklahoma. Some of it, the stories go, is from Spanish explorers. Other treasure was supposedly stashed by robbers in the 1800’s.And there’s the dedicated few who want to strike it rich by panning for gold in Oklahoma, and some are finding some nuggets.

    Maybe " iron door" was just a figure of speach?

  5. Lin R on August 8, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    Maybe all that fracking will cause the gold to rise up..

    A friend of mine found a cave here in Oklahoma with carvings from Jesse James and I think the Doolins, just outside of his property line, on technically government property. He reported it to the local museum, the museum brought in the authorities. My friend gave them all rides to the sight on his Gator side by side. About two months after the event my friend checked on the carvings and found them gone. He said that they were removed by professionals. The odd thing is that the only access to the site is through his property or the neighbors and the neighbors didn’t give access

    I found some gold once in Lebanon, OK. Two pieces of rock. I gave one away. I kept the other and still have it today.

    The guy who went to buzzards Roost was incorrect in his direction. He was pointing west when it in fact is east in the directions. To get to the top a person was meant to climb up the west side, walk around to the rock (cave was found with bucket) then from the rock head down the hill on the east side 50 yards (150 feet)

    I live about 3 miles north west of the gold belle mining site.

  15. Minnie Earhart on August 8, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    I sure would like to find some good coins! Here in Corpus Christi TX they say there’s pirate treasure on Padre island! Metal detecting is fun , I’ve found good things but not gold coins .

    Oklahoma had gold

  20. Native Smoke on August 8, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    I LIVE IN EUFAULA , OKLAHOMA. LETS GO TREASURE HUNTING!!

  21. Chebon Williams on August 8, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    That’s Bill Mahan at 14:29 not Cook. These photos are mostly from Wilson’s book. I believe that Jesse’s part of the cache is still out there. Buzzards Roost is only a 30 minute drive from me and there’s too many finds to regard the story as legend. A gold bar is worth around $25,000 or so. A bar connected to the James Gang? We’re talking a pretty penny.

  22. Bobby Hernandez on August 8, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    One thing I learn never take kids treasure hunting

  23. Polymath Perspective on August 8, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    This iron door is actually from Bell Star she was a woman outlaw and her gang robbed a train and took the door off the train, dragged it into the canyon and cemented it into the location. This was their hideout and cache behind it. The door is made of iron so it needed to be hidden from not only people but the gleam of the sun daily which will ruin it long term. The door is still there.

    Great expectations! Souvenirs & chit chat galore!

    My family moved to the Wichitas in 1895 and never left. I still live in the original homestead. We’re a bunch of mixed halfbreeds ๐Ÿ˜†. We looked for gold when we were kids by the creek on our place. Not far off North Fork. All we found was a human tooth. My grandma: " u kids stay away from that one spot in the creek"

  34. swamp fizz on August 8, 2022 at 6:36 pm

  35. Jim Whitaker on August 8, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I love your show I my self am a Cherokee citizen.

  36. brian massey on August 8, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    I’ll definately be honest with you guys. Lets just say I’m in the woods and I come across something thats significant amount of gold is involved sure I’m going to make that phone call to tell someone about it but it’s just to report it not to tell them hey my name is such n such and I’m out here at? Your not going to do that. You are going to tell them that you found something in the area just to report it. I think people keep things hush hush soo they don’t get in trouble with what they find but in all honesty it really does cause a problem and a big stir of echoes for not letting people know that you atleast found something so it can be atleast reported.

    My late Mother in law before she passed told me a few stories about outlaws that had stopped in and had dinner with her family in Blackgum, Oklahoma and how they camped out a lot of times in the woods in this area between Vian,Gore. She said that as a child she remembers a time Frank and Jesse James sat down and shared dinner with her family. She also said someone in her family had run with another couple of outlaws for a time, but he apparently quit taking part in robberies and such. Can’t remember what she said his name was though. She apparently knew quite a few notorious outlaws as a child living in Blackgum.

    The only treasure Iโ€™ve ever found here in Oklahoma is cheap land and low taxes! ๐Ÿ‘

  40. Robert Earhart on August 8, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    I knew it, I knew it"""๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ

  41. Gottlieb Goltz on August 8, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    The original story went – "the gold was found in the northeast section of Oklahoma before the land rush and hauled away in Mr. Peabody’s wagons by teamsters".

  42. Erin Dbs on August 8, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    That was really good. Thank you

  43. Steve Meade on August 8, 2022 at 6:45 pm

  45. Amanda Dipman on August 8, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Chase Jesus! He’s the real treasure.

  46. The Wolfe that Could on August 8, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Might not be a "Cure", but it Surely is a gift from those who went before. I wish you happy hunting and blessed travels. Thank you for the video, my Mother needed to see this, and I am sure that it will make her smile. I am thankful for that . Just remember that each and every day IS a gift and that you can make it or break it with each move. This being said; the smallest of gestures can change ones’ life. ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. Mike Myers on August 8, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    I lived in Grantie Oklahoma an lived in Altus Oklahoma for around 4 years. Most of the land around there is owned by rich cotton / wheat / corn farmers or is privately owned an you can’t get no where near these sites to look around without getting a gun pulled on you an trespassing an locked up. The farmers an private land owners know the history on there property an what any richest found there for themselves or they don’t care most that own the land around there are rich spoiled an the land been handed down from mema an pawpaw an the young folks are trust fund babies with money an power in that area . A poor working man is just a slave working for these people an don’t have a chance to better his self not inless he comes from the elite important rich family name in the area. People probably won’t like my comments but in the 4 years I lived in that area it was plainly seen by me . They haves an the have nots
