Black Creature Watching Me

Black Creature Watching Me

My cousin lives on the out-skirts of Morgantown on a place we call Crown Hill. It's near Rivesville. Well, my cousin and I had a fight at 1:30 AM on 7/23/11. I walk outside to take a breather. In front of me was a large hill with a few...
Red Eyes

Red Eyes

Every Christmas my mom lets me throw a Christmas party. Most of the time it's just me and 4 of my best friends having a sleepover and doing what ever comes to mind. This particular year we were making hot coco then going outside to play in the snow....
Unearthly Beasts

Unearthly Beasts

I've not encountered any of the strange beasts I discuss herein, but I think their legends warrant further investigation. Beyond the realm of ghosts and outside the classification of man-apes, encounters with strange creatures have been reported across the Mountain State. These bear or dog-like creatures seem to belong to...
What Followed Me?

What Followed Me?

In the 1950's I often went to my relative's in Wirt County to visit on the week-ends. The procedure was to drop them a post-card early in the week saying I would take the Greyhound bus to the stop where they picked me up. I did exactly that one week...
What The Heck Was That?

My Uncle Tony told me this story right before I left for basic training in 2008. In Genoa, West Virginia in Wayne County; my family owns a small farm. We only have a single cabin on the grounds, and it's used for recreational purposes only. I've grown up hunting...
The She-Devil

The She-Devil

This story even leaves me a little bit skeptical, which is odd because I am a firm believer in ghosts and the like, but it is still a little hard to grasp. It is a story of an experience that my mother had when she was around 11 or 12...
Beast of Bertha Hill

Beast of Bertha Hill

Yes, my name is Ronnie Knight of Maidsville WV. Actually Ronnie Knight is the alias I'm using. But to the point I live near some woods you see. These woods seem 'friendly' enough. Despite that there are fallen trees. Many vines and thorns and don't get me started on what...
Another White Beast Encounter

Another White Beast Encounter

I've had two encounters with The White Beast. Both occurred around or near my best friend's house in New Cumberland, West Virginia. I used to spend more time there than at my own home. His dad owned about three acres of land, but only about three-quarters of an acre...

Flying Creeper

Flying Creeper

It was starting to get dark and I was fishing at Cabwaylingo Park. I decided to stay a little while longer even though my friends left. As I cast my line into the water I felt something blow my hat. I thought the wind had picked up but as...
