5. Point Pleasant
One of the most well-known mysterious places in West Virginia, Point Pleasant is home to the legend of the “Mothman,” a 2 meter tall man-like beast with 3 meter long wings.
Whilst this may sound a little far-fetched, over 100 Point Pleasant inhabitants reported seeing the Mothman during the mid-1960s, although the collapse of the townships Silver Bridge, which resulted in over 40 casualties, seemingly put an end to the sightings.
Contemporarily, however, UFO sightings and the presence of strange outsiders asking Point Pleasant locals for information about paranormal activity in the area, still keep the inhabitants on their toes.
