Since were on the topic of Mothman, I thought I'd bring up a few more WV monsters such as the Flatwoods Monster. I've been there too. I'm positive I've covered the map of WV. WV is so beautiful that I've toured and stayed in several different counties and I've learned about a few myths, legends, monsters, ghost, and witches here and there. Definitely all up my alley and all of which fascinates me. This link, for all those that like to soak it up like me - lists various monsters from each county. And to anyone who would like to take a tour of WV. Here's a copied list:

Some of these spooks and monsters I know well. I've visited Droop Mountain Battlefield more times than I can count. Not only do I feel the presence of those that fought there, as I stand above there sunken graves, but I get this intense sadness that is overwhelming - if that makes any sense. And I can not contain myself at nightfall. I can't stay. Can't explain it - I just can't stay. A lot of people have heard of the Headless Horseman, the Blennerhassetts, the Hatfields and John Henry. I did have to research Big Hoot and Sheepsquatch because, well... I thought they were mispellings but there not. I am interested in Marion County Witch's grave (my county) because I'm not sure if I know that one. I do know we have a couple of ghost stories here but I don't know if this is connected to any I know. I will be googling it later. This is an amazing state with beautiful mountains but it is also a sad state with stories of abuse, depression, coal mining, and mysterious mountains - all which makes for a good ghost or monster.




Oh and Dark Phoenix - the Moundsville Penitentiary is just a few counties above me. I hear its just as good as Lakin State Mental Hospital or maybe better. Actually is been debuted in several different television series when it comes to famous haunts. The most famous ghost there is the shadow man.

On that same site that I placed a link to above is also a collection of pictures I thought someone might be interested in. These are pictures of popular haunts and some of the monsters




I've been to the Big Bend Tunnel - and no I didn't like it. I didn't like it at all. The energy wasn't good. Of course, anywhere there are tragic deaths - I'm not sure the energy could be anything but bad. Its not the only haunted train tunnel in this state. I do know of a couple of others.

That would be cool. I was hoping you knew where it was.
