How Geocaching Works

Minnesota is the 12th largest state
in the United States; therefore,
there are many places for hidden treasures.
Ma Barker and the Alvin Karpis gang were known around these parts as it is rumored they hid $150,000 in a canvas wrapped metal box underneath a fence post between Chatfield and Rochester along the old state highway 52.
In Henderson in Sibley County, there are two treasures. One is in a stand of trees; no one knows the exact location. However, the other one might be a bit easier to locate. Charles Ney was a brewery operator in Henderson for many years. He never put any of his fortune into the bank, and it is believed to be on his property.
Many people hid their valuables on their property or at the location of their businesses just as Charles Ney. Some of these include:
H. Lilly hid $60,000 on his property in LaCrescent.
Thomas Fontaine hid his fortune on his farm just east of Mentor.
Money from an unknown source is believed to be hidden on the west bank of the Mississippi River in the area we now know as Minneapolis. The amount of money is estimated to be around $5,000 in gold coins.
In Wadena, bandits hid their treasure close by the woods before the posse caught up with them and a gun battle began in which the bandits were killed.
In New Brighton, a chest of golden coins awaits you. Hundreds of searchers in late April 2009 were unable to find this stash. It is inside a castle, which was moved from its previous location. The castle was almost confiscated by a constable from Canterbury Shire, but the fast-talking King prevailed. Documents which may assist you are included here.
