I've really enjoyed sharing some strange and unusual vintage newspaper articles lately! Today's post features an article from the Paducah, Kentucky area. It seems that the farm of William Albert is home to a very special talking tree---one that keeps telling anyone who will listen that "there are treasures buried at my roots." The article states that a group of citizens tried to investigate the unknown voice, but there is no mention of anyone trying to dig up the tree and see if there really WAS treasure!
