Bushiribana Gold Mill Ruins

Gold had long been rumored to be present on Aruba, which is how the island got its name. Legends said there was red gold or “oro ruba” that in turn morphed into “Aruba.” It wasn’t until 1824 that real gold was finally discovered, and that started a major gold rush on the island.
