Lynn, MA 01904
Dungeon Rock is a 135-foot-deep cave once believed to hold a treasure and its unfortunate pirate. Late in the summer of 1658, a sinister ship appeared in Lynn Harbor. It was believed that one pirate took a stolen treasure with him as he escaped deep into the woods, arriving at a natural cave in what is now Lynn Woods. The pirate lived in the cave for some time until an earthquake rocked the Lynn area, causing a gigantic piece of the rock to tip forward and permanently seal the cave opening. The pirate was either trapped inside or crushed to death with his treasure, locked forever in Dungeon Rock.
