Deluna Treasure Hunt

Posted on: April 18th, 2014 by brent


The ones that came first were wrecked

but one is giving up its secrets.

Those who study it have a marker

you can see from slightly west.


By the wayside, see center and stone

and neither should get a snub.

The key you seek is in the name

of the third and final club.



African-American history here

may be found in a new brochure.

You may have noticed it before

while on this very tour.


Spend some time to read it.

And find your key in the name

of the Spanish admiral who

had their help to build the fort.



Yellow fever came in waves in Pensacola

filling the cemeteries in multiple years.

In a corner of the mason’s ground

ten small stones tell one of these years.


West of these another year’s victim rests,

her importance supported by historic names.

Amid older dates on a newer stone,

your key is the longest word you see.


A new marker’s on the busy street

that runs behind the new-named center.

Read of the storm-delayed dedication

that happened in ’07 and not ’06.


Fifty years it housed the rites

only to be outgrown.

Your key names the group on the

marker that finally moved on.



Seek Pace area history online and

find Friends of the Pace Library.

In their local history project M. Luther

introduces a Creek Grand Chief.


American Brigadier General, Spanish consular agent,

and silent partner in a trading company,

his true allegiance was always to his tribesmen.

Your key is in the name of this remarkable chief.
