When two young couples witnessed a terrifying, red-eyed, winged humanoid just outside of Pt. Pleasant, WV one November evening in 1966, that sleepy little West Virginia town along the Ohio River became forever entwined with the Mothman story. For 13 long months, the citizens of Pt. Pleasant were plagued by sightings of the creature, along with reports of UFOs, Men in Black, other strange cryptids, ghosts, and even psychic visions.  Even to this day, Pt. Pleasant is home to the annual Mothman Festival, the world's only Mothman Museum, and of course, the beloved Mothman statue. People com ..read more

Huntington's Spring Hill Cemetery I'm an all-around spooky kinda person. In addition to cruising cemeteries for potential ghosts, I also just love visiting these locations for a glimpse into the art, history, and culture of a particular location! There's so much beauty to observe and so many secrets to uncover, simply by taking the time to look closely at the clues hidden within the tombstones themselves. A few weeks ago, Spectral Research and Investigations had an investigation that was rescheduled at the last minute, due to an emergency on the part of the client. As several membe ..read more

Tour Guide, Denise Cyrus One of the things I love almost as much as the paranormal is learning about local history. As a native West Virginian, I'm fascinated by my state's rich and unique background, and the stories of those who have called these hills home over the years. And obviously, whenever, I see an opportunity to experience the SPOOKY and unusual history of the Mountain State, I jump at the chance! Last week I did just that with a guided walking tour of St. Albans! Led by local historian Denise Cyrus, this month's St. Albans History and Mystery Tours are focused on the Civ ..read more

1880 Victorian Woman By Fresh Grave Source: GettyImages One night in December of 1904, Mrs. C.T. Rodgers, who lived at the head of Keeney's Creek in Fayette County, WV had a dream. She dreamed that her deceased sister came to her, asking for help. This sister had a daughter (Mrs. Rodgers' niece) who apparently had been led astray, and was not living a very moral life, according to the deceased. She begged Mrs. Rodgers to speak with the girl, and convince her to change her ways. To this, Mrs. Rodgers replied that it would be useless; the girl would not listen to her. So, the deceased ..read more

Norfolk and Western Rail Yard (1944) Williamson, WV Source: WV History on View It seems weird to me to write a blog post about Williamson, WV that ISN'T about the haunted and historic Williamson Memorial Hospital, now known as the Old Hospital on College Hill. But, awhile back as I was collecting old newspaper stories about haunted places and ghostly goings-on throughout West Virginia, I had clipped a tale from the September 1st, 1935 edition of the Bluefield Daily Telegraph.  At the time, the newspaper was running a series of articles featuring ghost stories submitted by reader ..read more

It isn't Friday yet, but I could desperately use a little laugh!  The photo above was all over Facebook the last few months, but was also all over Reddit, and by the caption, appears to have originally come from ifunny.co. It shows the legendary pot-smoking comedy duo, Cheech and Chong, meeting the world-famous ghost hunting couple, Ed and Lorraine Warren.  You know me---I had to do a little digging to see what I could learn about the context of this rather odd celebrity meet-up.  On September 24, 1982, both Cheech and Chong and Ed and Lorraine Warren appeared together on Th ..read more

Myers Hospital in Philippi Source: WV History on View One of the many strange and fascinating topics I like reading about is how afterlife studies play into the field of parapsychology as a whole. Earlier this year, I finally finished The Signet Handbook of Parapsychology, a collection of parapsychology articles edited by Martin Ebon on a variety of different subtopics within the genre. Included in the lengthy tome was a chapter on ESP ability in animals, in particular a paper by J.B. Rhine and Sara R Feathers entitled "The Study of 'Psi Trailing' in Animals." This paper first appear ..read more
