12th annual Mothman Festival

Walking through the streets of Point Pleasant, W.Va., is like strolling the archives of American history. Beneath the asphalt lies the earth where the first battle of the American Revolution was fought. Virginians and Native Americans bled and died on that land. Theirs are the bones on which America was built.

However, the most notable period in Point Pleasant's history was far more recent. The sudden appearance of the Mothman was alarming enough, but not as much as the tragic event that coincided with its disappearance.

Hundreds of people crowded the streets of downtown Point Pleasant on Sept. 21 and 22 to eat, listen to music and browse the Mothman related products offered by more than 40 vendors at the annual Mothman Festival.

The most popular attraction was the Mothman Museum, which houses historical documents and artifacts concerning the creature and other strange events that occurred in that time. It also contains an extensive collection of items and props from 2002’s “The Mothman Prophecies,” a film loosely based on the book of the same name.

Every year, the festival grows, attracting a greater number of people. Jeff Wamsley, the festival's director, credits the festival's creation and growing success to the rise of online media and the movie.
