The name of our shop comes from the legend of a rich gold mine hidden in the southwestern United States. The location is generally believed to be in the Superstition Mountains, near Apache Junction, east of Phoenix, Arizona. There have been many stories about how to find the mine, and each year people search for the mine. Some have died on the search.
The mine is named after German immigrant Jacob Waltz (c. 1810–1891), who purportedly discovered it in the 19th century and kept its location a secret. ("Dutchman" was a common American term for a "German" (or "Deutsch"), since for many English speaking Americans the words "Dutch" and "Deutsch" have a similar pronunciation, for example Pennsylvania Dutch; "Dutch" is the English cognate to the German demonym, "Deutsch".)
The Lost Dutchman's is perhaps the most famous lost mine in American history.
