Barboursville, WV Road Sign / Stock Photo

There is something in the woods near Barborsville. Two boys saw it near the interstate, then it was behind a woman’s garage at Ona. It has a man’s face. Me an my buddies are always in the woods and we saw something way off at the edge of this clearing where a tipple was, that they tore out around 1978. It was out past the Guyandotte River at night.

I didn’t know what it was, so I said let’s just stay up here, but this one guy had been drinking and he wanted to go down to where it went behind a big pile of stumps. So we walked down but never could find anything. But you could sense that whatever it was was still there.

If anyone else has seen it or heard people talk about it, please let me know.
