Today, Mulberry, Tennessee is nothing more than a memory however; it was once a very prosperous town with one of the most popular horse racing tracks in the south. People from all over would come, bring their fastest horses, and bet on the outcome. As the legend goes, there was a family of gypsies by the name of Cooper that was known throughout the racing circuit. They usually came to the race with their pockets full of money to bet on their horses and the majority of the time walked away with the prize.

On this one occasion, one of the Cooper brothers came to Mulberry with a beautiful Arabian racehorse. His plan was to race his prize winning horse, return to the Gypsy colony, where he would marry his bride and then enjoy many days of festivities after the wedding.

Cooper bet his gold on his horse and then buried the money which amounted to $50,000 along with a diamond wedding ring and a gold pocket watch set with diamonds.

The day of the race, it began to rain. Cooper went about doing all the other mundane tasks to prepare for the race in the hopes of the rain slacking off so he win the race and be off. When the rain quit, Cooper asked the trainer to take his horse out on the track for a run or two. The trainer said that this was not a good idea since the track was slick from all the rain. Since the trainer refused, Cooper saddled up his horse and was off at full speed around the track. The horse slipped in the slick mud and fell. When the horse fell, so did Cooper. The heavy horse shoes of the Arabian crushed the skull of Cooper and he died without regaining consciousness.

Cooper was buried near the mulberry tree which gave the town its name and you could still see his grave in the 1940ĺs. After his death, many members of the gypsy colony would search for the treasure but to this day no one has ever located the buried gold.
