$1.3 m for this Historic Statue

This is the list price. See picture below, a 14-ft statue of an Indian Chief. It may be a good buy.

Oh, by the way, it also comes with a 4-bedroom house, 1.4-acre of hilltop land, historic caves, possibly hidden treasures, etc.



Historical statue comes with house

April 5, 2007 - Home buyers and history and mystery buffs have the chance to own a bit of Agoura Hills' lore if they buy a house high in the hills above Agoura Road.

The four-bedroom, three-bath home sitting atop a 1.38-acre hilly lot offers some unique amenities - a 14-foot statue of an Indian sculpted by Count Jean de Strelecki, a Polish immigrant and artist; caves once used as an outpost for weary travelers; a stone mask either engraved or embedded in the side of the hill and possibly other artifacts dating back to the days when Chumash Indians resided in the area.

A legend claims one of the largest caves was used as a hideout for the bandit Joaquin Murrieta.

Hidden treasure is also said to be buried on or near the site, possibly by Murrieta, but owners Scott and Donna Sava and their twin 4-year-old sons have yet to discover any stashed gold. ....

The Chief White Eagle monument was unveiled sometime in the early 1940s when Agoura was young and cattle ranching and sheepherding were the dominant industries of the day. ....
