Elk Mountain


Spirits of the dead are said to guard an underground cave with a thick iron door, hidden somewhere on this mountain. The Cave with the Iron Door is said to contain Spanish gold, as well as two hundred thousand dollars hidden there by Jesse James, and another five hundred thousand dollars hidden by Belle Starr. In the early 1900s two couwboys are said to have stumbled on the iron door, but could not find it when they returned with tools to open it. Sporadic sitings of the iron door in the side of Elk Mountain have continued for the last eighty years. [Haunted Places, The National Directory: Dennis William Hauck]
(The lost treasure site covers the Treasure Lake area and Elk Mountain between the towns of Indiahoma and Hobart. The area is in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.)
