Betty and Barney Hill Abduction Site

Classic UFO


SEPTEMBER 19, 1961


If you’re on Liminal, you probably already know who these folks are but this is the site of the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill. Roswell, NM gets all the UFO action but this is where all the common tropes of abduction originated.

On September 19th, 1961, Betty and Barney Hill were returning to their home in Portsmouth, NH, from a trip to Canada when at around 10:30pm, The Hills witnessed what appeared to be a UFO. They pulled off the road at a picnic area to watch but took off in a panic when the craft seemed to approach their car. A short chase ensued and their recollections become hazy here. When they regain control of their consciousness, the couple discovered that they had driven 35 miles but had hardly any recollection of what had happened.

Through hypnosis, both reported that they had become mesmerized by the operators of the craft, were compelled to pull off the road and get out of their car where they were taken aboard the craft. Both reported that they were experimented upon, shown star maps believed to be the origins of these EBEs, and were returned to their car. Since then, locals to Lincoln, New Hampshire have built memorials to the abduction. The restrooms, of all place, of the Irving Express off exit 33 on I93 features an elaborate mural dedicated to the abduction and the state of New Hampshire placed a sign commemorating the event along the route as well.
