The 2019 Face the Fear once again takes place in one of the most "haunted" locations in Florida - The Historic Longwood Village Inn. This old hotel is the stuff of legend and one of "those" places that everyone fears...

In 2019 experience...
Longwood’s Olde Stolen Treasure

Our story begins….
History’s most famous pirate Blackbeard (real name: Edward Teach) and his 40-gun flagship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, prowled the West Indies and the Atlantic coast of North America, preying on ships heading back to Spain laden with gold, silver and other treasures from Mexico and South America.

In late 1718, a British naval force led by Lieutenant Robert Maynard succeeded in killing Blackbeard. Before his death, Blackbeard claimed to have hidden his massive treasure, but he never told anyone its location.

Treasure hunters have been searching for it ever since.

History you probably don’t know…
During the Seminole Wars in Florida - Army troops moved through Central Florida anticipating an assault, and wanted to ensure that civilian residents vacated the area. A young officer, reportedly named Steler, came across an old woman and a child living in a run-down shack in Longwood. The woman refused to leave the house, as she had grown up in it, and began telling Steler stories about the area. He wasn’t interested until the old woman mentioned treasure buried nearby. She referred to it as ye Olde Stolen Treasure.

According to the old woman, Blackbeard and his pirates had buried his famous lost treasure on a plot of land in Longwood, Florida. Blackbeard wanted to be the master of the sea - and his treasure was a collection of not only gold, coins, jewels, but also included creatures and nautical oddities. After the treasure was lowered into the hole, Blackbeard stabbed one of his crew and tossed the body into the hole. The pirates covered the pit, left with the intent to one day return. But they never did. The old woman insisted that the Longwood’s Olde Stolen Treasure was cursed by Blackbeard to prevent anyone from ever taking it from him.

Steler helped the old woman and the child out of the area, then returned with a friend named Pillfer to look for the treasure that same night As they dug, the tops of the trees began swaying as if in a high wind; the deeper the dug, the higher the wind rose, until the wind became too fierce to work in. Flashes of light began to appear, with greater frequency as the hole grew deeper. Finally there came a long flash, that made the night “bright as noon,” and Steler and Pillfer saw that they were not alone. The dark forms of a crew of pirates stood behind them; telling them all who touched the treasure would be cursed. The pirate promised that the power of Blackbeard himself would be unleashed if the treasure was ever disturbed. Steler and Pillfer dropped their tools and escaped promising never to tell anyone what had happened.

Of course that story is nothing but legend.
Recently a team of treasure hunters (2019) from the Treasure Allocation Group (TAG) discovered the location of the treasure in Longwood and secured permission to excavate and remove the findings under the authority of the United Reclamation of International Treasures (URIT)

Their findings, curse or no curse have now been put on display for a brief showing in Longwood.
