Oak Island Fascinates Dr. Allan Marble


Dr. Allan Marble, a historian and a former president of the Royal Nova Scotia Historical Society, has recently talked about how fascinated he is by the mysterious Oak Island. His recent quest for a strange stone has been included in the fourth episode of “The Curse of Oak Island” Season 4. According to The Chronicle Herald, Marble, who used to work at Dalhousie University, says this particular stone was found “in the pit that was dug when people were trying to find the Oak Island treasure” at 90 feet, which is why it has subsequently been named “the 90-foot stone”.

Furthermore, Marble reveals more about the stone. We learned that this strange rock that people digging in the pit came across was reported to be a green granite. What’s even more interesting is that it had something written on it. “They found a flat stone with writing on it — that stone was removed from the pit, and was sort of an item of curiosity for some time,” now retired Dalhousie professor said.

Having done more research about the stone, the team found out that it had been displayed in the shop window of a store “Creighton & Marshall Stationers.” However, the store was sold in 1919, and it is still not completely clear what happened with the stone after that. “People have mentioned to me it’s possible he took the stone to the Halifax Club for safekeeping,” says Marble.


In order to find out more about this strange item, they went to the basement of the building in which “Creighton & Marshall Stationers” was once located. Instead of finding answers, they found only more mysteries, such as “boarded-up underground military tunnel.” A trip to Halifax Club did not bring the team to new clues, either. But, Marble claims they haven’t given up yet. Some of his plans for further research include meeting with members of the Creighton family and examining a diary kept by the museum director at the time. “A lot of this is pure conjecture, but there’s so many tidbits of evidence there is something there,” Marble concludes.
