I figured I'd bring this subject of local legend around my area to the light of the ATS community this place is very interesting for all of the
reports of occurences, especially due to many reputable witnesses, including police and newspeople.
I'll give you a brief overview, the Hockomock Swamp has been a place of odd events since Pre-Europe contact, its name is Native American and means
"Devil's swamp" or "Place where spirits dwell". It's oddities include Low-flying UFOs, Bigfoot creatures, cattle mutilations, Indian curses,
ghostly apparitions, as well as a number of strange plants some of which have only been found in the Amazon Forest, which is quite away from the area
which is a little bit south of Boston. Reports of UFOs date back to 1760.
There is much more but Ill give you the links to the articles for that but I do have one personal thing to ad. One of my fathers good friends is
skitzofrenic, and didnt take medicine for a long time, during this period he has told my father that he would go into the Hockomock to burn fires. Now
he is back on his meds and he was telling my father that while he was in there he deff saw different cults doing ceremonys in the swamp, apparently he
is sure now that he is off the meds that, that was real. Well here are the links, also I can also say I have been in these woods and they are VERY
One last thing as a local perspective this is not the sticks at all all of these towns are suburbs the swamp is huge and is the only area of its size
that has not been built in at all. Well I hope you all enjoy and I look forward to your comments.
The Bridgewater Triange encomesses the Swamp and a number of suburban areas as well which are loaded with ghosts ect.
