The Mothman was first spotted by gravediggers in 1966 at a cemetery in Clendenin, West Virginia. This large, winged, humanoid creature has made his home in the Mountain State ever since. The vast majority of Mothman sightings have occurred nearly 80 miles away from Clendenin, around the hazardous explosives waste site of an abandoned TNT Factory in Point Pleasant.
Drawn to tragedy like (ahem) a moth to a flame, this precognitive ambulance chaser of the unnatural world makes cluster appearances in the months leading up to catastrophe. Most believe the Mothman is warning of impending events, and unfortunately his powers of prediction are legendary because tragedy always follows him. Mothman is now among the most notorious cryptids in North America. It ain’t the moonshine that makes this legend all too real…
Drive Carefully: Hair-raising reports noted low level, high-speed flight and an annoying propensity to follow and tap the tops of cars driving throughout West Virginia.
Tragic First Contact: The earliest sightings allegedly forecasted the 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge that claimed 46 lives and brought the legend into the national spotlight.
