Sunken Pirate Ship With Treasure Found Near St. Louis?

By  | 

I have one more reason to finally make it to St. Louis this year! According to the Rock City Times, divers in the Mississippi River found a 300 year old pirate ship complete with gold and jade and numerous casks of honey moonshine. (h/t  @EmilySkarbek)

They’re keeping the booty, but the ship will be given to the city of St. Louis and displayed underneath the arch. A temporary exhibit will go up in April.

The best part?
