On this episode of Weird Renown we will be discussing a legend in Virginia involving a man named Thomas J. Beale who was part of a group of thirty men who discovered a mine full of treasure while hunting buffalo in New Mexico in the 1800’s. Thomas was said to have transported the treasure back to Virginia, making several trips. Becoming worried that he would be apprehended on the road, Thomas devised three coded messages that when read together would reveal the location of a treasure that is said to be valued at nearly 60 million dollars. To this day, a discovery of this treasure has not been recorded, despite many attempts.
