Rivesville

Rivesville

Years ago, I can remember a family living close to the entrance to the hollow. The teenage boy swore he saw Bigfoot in the hollow. Needles to say no one believed him. When the incident started be told, one person said that there where guys from Rivesville that ride...

I am now 18 years old and live in Minnesota, but I lived most of my life in a little holler called Chapman Branch, located on North Fork Road just outside of the town of Chapmansville. I was about 17 when this occurred. It was early fall, around the...

Ayew Monster

My dad told me a story about a critter his grandfather "Doc" Carpenter encountered once while hunting in the woods surrounding Erbacon, WV which is in Webster County. He said he was stalking either turkey or deer when he realized he was being stalked by a creature that resembled...
White Beast

White Beast

My husband and I were taking a drive one night down Route 35 going toward Winfield. We had just gotten to where there were no lights or houses around. I was looking out my window trying not to be scared of what I might see. Joe (my husband) had said...
Whetstone Road

Whetstone Road

During the winter of 1978-79, My family and I heard strange howls/screams around our rural home during the hours of 11:30 PM - 1:30 AM. During this time several drain pipes around our home were knocked down and what ever did this left many large, human-like footprints. These prints...

When I moved into the Dormitory of West Virginia State College, I expected to find lots of new friends. While I did find those, I also acquired a pesky little fairy (don't let me fool you, I love the little booger). The story starts like this: Our friend who lived...
Huntington Spring Valley Area

Huntington Spring Valley Area

Hello, My name is Dwayne. I am 31, married, father of two and probably the most skeptical person around. I can usually find some reasonable explanation for ghosts, UFO's etc.., but I heard something when I was thirteen that scared me more than anything ever had before or since....
Sheepsquatch

The Croup

This is not a personal encounter and I probably would never recount this story if I had not seen something on this site entitled "The White Thing". This sparked my interest. I don't know if my story relates since I left WV years ago and have never heard this...
Stalked By Wild Animal

Stalked By Wild Animal

This story is a vivid recollection from my childhood, growing up in rural Pocahontas County. The encounter took place about 12 miles north of Neola, in the southern end of the county. It was late spring or early summer of 1979, my mother, two brothers, and I were returning home...

This is a true story and I would not waste my time if it wasn't. It all started on a fun night at the carnival. My parents and I were taking my best friend Briar back to his house. Briar and I both got out of the car and started...
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...
