The island has been the subject of numerous treasure hunts during the last 220 years, with The Curse of Oak Island bringing the island’s infamous story to a worldwide audience. The series is now in its eighth season and the treasure hunters have unearthed a string of amazing artefacts including an ancient lead cross, age-old coins, intriguing gemstones, and even human bones dating back centuries.
The Curse of Oak Island filming location includes France and Scotland, where some parts of the series were shot in season 2 and season 5. It is believed that the treasure was moved to Scotland from France.
In season 2, the team filmed at Saltcoats, Kilwinning Abbey, and Rosslyn Chapel. Nova Scotia’s South Shore has a storied history of treasure hunting as well as being a popular destination for film and television production. The long-running series Haven was filmed at a variety of locations throughout the South Shore, including Chester, Hubbards, Northwest Cove and Lunenburg, while History Channel’s The Curse of Oak Island explores the local island believed by many to be hiding one of the greatest treasures in history.
