The Bridgewater Triangle

Classic UFO, Cryptoids, Dark Forces, High Weirdness, Straight Up Ghosts, Strange Animals, Thin Places


Per submitter, “Legends of this region go back to times before Europeans settled here.”


This place has it all: UFOs, black helicopters, cattle mutilation, thunderbirds, cryptids, people experiencing missing time, giant snakes, ghosts, a troublesome being called Pukwudgie that matches a lot of European fairy lore.

Beginning in the late 1980’s, Freetown cops were alerted when locals were finding mutilated animals in the forests of the triangle. Reports say that they were killed in a “ritualistic” manner which honestly can mean anything at that point. This was happening in the middle of the Satanic Panic. Regardless, it was a LOT of dead animals ranging from the small (cats) to the large (cows). And this kept happening into the 90’s. The perpetrators were never identified and locals assumed that a violent cult was at work in the area. In 2015, the Triangle upped the ante. Mutilated human bodies were found in the same forest in 2015. The corpses of two women were found stacked, both were missing body parts. The killer is still at large.

There were mass UFO sightings in the 1970’s. The classic triangle-shaped craft was spotted by locals in 1972 and there are even reports of crafts spotted as far as back as the mid-1700’s.

There are reports of a ghost trucker, a ghost hitchhikers, both which menace drivers on the roads in the Triangle at night.

People have disappeared without a trace in the forest, there’s a lake monster, Bigfoot sightings, giant birds. There’s Dighton Rock, which has petroglyph carvings all over that no one can identify.

The center of the activity seems to center on Hockamock swamp, which means Place of Spirits to the Wampanoag people, but three towns compose the points of a triangle where all sorts of crazy, weird, and sometimes menacing. The towns are Abington, Freetown, and Rehoboth.
