Treasure chest

Dennis Riedhammer of Grand Forks buried a wooden chest, which contains $1,000, somewhere in Hillsboro.

Budding treasure hunters will be scouring Hillsboro starting today.

Dennis Riedhammer, owner of Riedhammer Masonry in Grand Forks, has buried a treasure chest somewhere in town. Inside is $1,000 in golden $1 coins.

“We did some work in Hillsboro this year and took on a new project in Buxton and wanted to return the favor to the community,” Riedhammer said.

“We hope someone finds it, shares with their loved ones in the experience and rewards, and that they return the chest to us.”

This is not Riedhammer’s first foray into giving back to local communities with buried treasure.
