On a chilly, fall night in November 1966, two young couples
drove into the TNT area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia,
when they realized they were not alone.

What they saw that night has evolved into one of the great
mysteries of all time; hence the Mothman Legacy began. It has
grown into a phenomenon known all over the world by millions
of curious people asking questions: What really happened?
What did these people see? Has it been seen since?

It still sparks the world's curiosity—the mystery behind
Point Pleasant, West Virginia's MOTHMAN.
