Located in southeastern Massachusetts is a 200sq foot area
known as the Bridgewater Triangle. This area got its name because of all of the
strange happenings that occur within its boundaries. It a zone that is
overloaded with the paranormal.
Here there is an abnormally high amount of poltergeist and other
spirit activities within the local areas and in residents homes. One of the most haunted places is the
Hockomock swamp. This area is believed to be cursed by the Native Americans
that used to live here. It is also the site of a 8,000 year old Native American
Burial ground. It is said that when archaelogists opened the graves, a red
ochre bubbled up and then disappeared. No one was able to take photos of the
site as none of the pictures developed. People now here mysterious voices and
will smell smoke at random times. There have been reports of a bonfire on top
of a large rock that will disappear when a person gets too close to it. People
have also reported seeing ghostly figures dancing a ritualistic dance. Other
famous ghosts in this area include a redheaded hitchhiker on Route 44 in
Rehoboth, a spirit near the Hockomock swamp on route 138, and a ghostly truck
driver from Freetown who will blare his horn angrily at other motorists and
speed past them.
The Bridgewater triangle is also well known for its
cryptids. A Bigfoot like creature has been seen throughout the area, usually near
Hockomock swamp. In the 1970s reports of a 7ft tall creature, along with
footprints prompted the police to search for a bear. Neither human being or
bear was ever found in the area. Other than Bigfoot there have been reports of
thunderbirds. These massive birds have a wingspan of 8-12 feet and have been
spotted in Hockomock swamp and Taunton. Another mysterious report is that of a
phantom dog. It was reported that a large dog with glowing red eyes was found
killing two ponies. Supposedly the dog was as big as the two ponies were. There
have also been reports of giant snakes in the area.
Other than ghosts and cryptids, the Bridgwater triangle is
home to many UFO sightings. These sightings date back to 300 years when settlers
in 1760 saw a glowing ball of light up in the sky. Other UFO sightings include Halloween
of 1908 when UFO sightings made the local newspapers, in 1968 when five people
claimed to have seen a strange ball of light floating among the trees in
Rehoboth, A string of UFO sightings in the 1970’s, with one report in 1976 claiming
that two UFOs were seen landing along route 44, in 1994 an officer saw a triangular
shaped craft with red and white lights, and in modern times there are still
frequent reports of glowing balls of light which float over the ground a the local
dog track in Raynham.
As if the above were not enough, this area has been home to grisly
murders (including an underground bunker with chains and bindings made for
children), mysterious will-o-the wisp type lights, animal mutilations, satanic
rituals, and mysterious black helicopters that patrol the skys.
Saying there are no aliens in the universe is like scooping a cup of water out of the ocean and saying there are no fish.
