You know all about Mothman, and you're probably familiar with the Flatwoods Monster. But have you heard of Rivesville's Morgan's Ridge Monster? Did you know of the horrific events of the summer of 1964 when the headless horror known as the Grafton Monster stalked the Tygart River?
Have you read the unbelievable reports of the strange creature called Sheepsquatch? From the Morgantown Morlock to the Kanawha Country Creature to the Fort Ashby Screamer, tales are told of strange white creatures that roam the night, phantoms with fangs the lurk in our wooded hills.
Have you heard of such creatures? No? Then take a place by the campfire and get comfortable.
I have a story to tell you.
