The Oak Island

Posted by Freddy on Mar-6-2010

Oak Island is tree covered island on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. Money Pit is one of the most exciting and noted location in the Oak Island. The money pit in the Oak Island which made it world famous was found by Daniel McGinnis. One can only wonder what would have happened if young Daniel McGinnis had chosen to go exploring somewhere else on that fateful day in the summer of 1795. If he had, perhaps nobody else would have walked the woods on the eastern end of Oak Island for the next ten years. In that time, the clearing McGinnis found might have been reclaimed completely by the woods. In a forest, the thirteen foot-wide depression in the ground might never have been noticed. Thick, leafy branches might have obscured the old tackle block hanging from a branch directly over the pit. Without these markers, there would have been nothing to indicate that this was the work of man. And there might have never been the two-hundred year long treasure hunt that cost several fortunes and many lives.
Numerous evacuations have been made to recover the treasure believed by many to be buried there. The island is privately owned and the visitation requires permission. Several treasure hunts have been made to recover treasure from the money pit, but those attempts ended in the collapse of the evacuation and flooding. The treasure has many stories behind it, some believe it has been buried by pirates, some believe that it is naval treasure. Some argue that the pit is natural and there is no treasure hidden in it. Over the years no one is able to find the mystery behind the money pit is still unveiled.
