The Indies Ballard

by | Aug 7, 2017 | Treasure Stories | 0 comments

The Indies Ballard was a triple masted sloop which sank in 1792 off the northern stretch of Maryland state’s Assateague Island. With her sank $130,000 in gold intended to indirectly fuel the thriving slave trade in America. Despite two known searches, the ship and her treasure have never been found and they remain a tempting lure for treasure seekers even after almost 190 years. This is a very good site for a diver.
