The Mysteries of the Bridgewater Triangle

Known as the Bridgewater Triangle, it has been talked about for years. Particularly in the 1970s, a lot of paranormal activity seems to have occurred in southeastern Massachusetts. There would have been encounters including sightings of Bigfoot, UFOs, cult sacrifices, fireballs, poltergeists, and Native American spirits roaming around this location.

The triangular area measures approximately 200 square miles. The boundaries were set in the 1970s by cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, who gave the place his name. Later, she would write a book called Mysterious America. Some places have been noted, such as Hockomock Swamp as a central location. This is where many wandering spirits have been reported by people.

Another famous place is Dighton Rock. This is where a 40 ton rock is located. It is believed to have arrived at the Taunton River during the melting of glaciers during the last ice age. Many engravings have been carved into the rock, they have inspired many books and even been part of 35 different hypotheses. These inscriptions are quite old and have been proven to be legitimate.

The Freetown-Fall River State Forest, located inside the triangle, has been a magnet for worship activities. Animal sacrifices have been reported and ritual killings allegedly committed by Satanists. If that wasn't enough to turn people back, there have been gang-related murders and suicides.

Anawan (historical figure) Wampanoag received the lost wampum belt from Philip at a site known as Profile Rock. Legend has it that this ghostly spirit can be seen sitting on this rock, sitting with its legs crossed and / or arms outstretched, towards a nearby wanderer.

More has been reported in the triangle, including numerous sightings of Bigfoot (Sasquatch). The location where most of the reports were noted is near the Hockomock Marsh area. A man named Joseph DeAndrade mentioned this half-man, half-ape creature in 1978. A local man, John Baker, also reported seeing it while going canoeing.

Another strange sighting was a reported Thunderbird flying around. These pterodactyl-like creatures are said to have wings over 12 feet long. They have been seen in Taunton and Hockomock Marshes. (Police Sergeant Thomas Downy also reported seeing one)

Locals tell stories of Native Americans who were not treated well by colonial settlers. This has led to speculation of a supposed curse instilled on this earth. Spirits here may be bitter at the Wampum Belt artifact that was lost during King Philip's war.
