Many of us have dreamed about searching for and finding a treasure that could change history. Or maybe it’s the pure excitement of thinking about the wealth we might acquire from finding a valuable hidden treasure. This is the story of two brothers who always wanted to be explorers and hunt treasure, but who didn’t know what they were getting into when they went after a 200-year-old cursed treasure in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The Curse Of Oak Island
In 1956, Rick Lagina was only 11 years old when he first read an article in Reader’s Digest about the hidden treasure on Oak Island. The writer didn’t mention the treasure’s whereabouts which only made Rick even more curious about the cursed treasure of Oak Island. The story told of a curse that would take the lives of seven people before anyone could retrieve the treasure.
Since Rick was always interested in adventures and exploring as a child, it was no surprise that he wanted to find the treasure he had read about. One day Rick was strolling through his neighborhood in Kingsford when he came across a large granite stone that seemed to be covering something. After summoning the help of his friends to move the rock, he was disappointed to find that there was nothing underneath it.
