According to legend a stagecoach carrying gold bars was loaded onto a barge to be transported across lake Tahoe some time around 1850. The story goes that this coach full of gold also had a coffin strapped on top. A sudden storm with heavy winds was said to have caused rough waters which toppled the stage coach laden heavy with gold bars overboard into lake Tahoe. Rumors mention that the stage coach rests on an underwater ledge next to a steep drop which goes very deep to the bottom of lake Tahoe. Research indicates that divers have found the 1850 stagecoach sank in lake Tahoe and even looked inside. However they were afraid to open the coffin and did not find the gold. Where could it be?
