SISSONVILLE- It's been over forty-six years since he was first reported being seen. Roger and Linda Scarberry saw him first along with Steve and Mary Mallette. On a dark, deserted road in Point Pleasant, WV Mothman made his first appearance in West Virginia. There are many stories related to the Mothman.
The peaceful community of Point Pleasant, West Virginia was gripped in a vice of ever-increasing terror for over one year, beginning in November 1966 and reaching a horrible climax on December 15, 1967, with the collapse of the Silver Bridge during rush hour traffic, plunging 46 innocent Christmas shoppers to their deaths in the icy Ohio River. Events leading up to the tragedy in the months beforehand caused many people to blame “The Mothman”, a mysterious creature that had begun its reign of fear by first appearing to two young married couples outside the abandoned WWII TNT factory on the outskirts of town.
