The buried treasure hoax


This week’s Echo of Our Past will be the story of a court case from the 2nd Judicial District Court, sitting at Minden, in 1919. There is no great historical significance to this case, it is simply one of most unique stories I’ve ever heard and certainly adds a colorful tale to Webster Parish history.

At first examination, one might find some historical significance in this matter by observing that the filing of what seem to be frivolous lawsuits is not a new phenomenon. Nor is the granting of favorable rulings from a court in such cases a recent development.
