Saints Row: Where to Find All Hidden Historic Locations

There are 16 hidden history locations to discover in Saints Row, and each one gives you a glimpse into Santo Ileso’s past. They are among the many finds spread across the map, in the same category as drug paddles, dumpster diving, and photo hunting opportunities.

To find these locations, you’ll need to pass near them on the map, which means a lot of exploring if you don’t have a guide to show you where they are. Hidden stories are marked by golden icons with treasure chests in the middle. To see them, open your Map app and go to “Discoveries”.

Once you arrive at a landmark, you will need to find and interact with five green historical signposts. You don’t have to listen to an entire audio file at a marker before listening to the audio file at the next marker for it to count, so you can skim through them if you’re not interested in learning more about the traditions of Santo Ileso.

Below, we’ve rounded up all of the hidden story locations, starting closest to Saints Church Headquarters and moving counterclockwise. Completing each site gives you some cash and XP, and some locations are linked giving more cash and XP as well as new clothes for completing both areas.
