The “Far West” Riverboat Story

by | Aug 4, 2017 | Treasure Stories | 0 comments

$375,000 in gold bars were removed from the riverboat, “Far West”, and buried less than a half mile above Yellowstone River’s junction with the Big Horn River, about 500 yards inland at the foot of the nearest hill. When the party returned to recover the hoard, rains had caused a landslide which hindered all efforts to recover the gold. It is supposedly still there, at the base of the slope facing away from the river, on the far side of the hill.
