First and foremost I want to apologize to all the readers for the delay in posting. Frankly, I am a college student and it was finals week. I appreciate you all coming back to check out the blog though and hopefully we should be back to a weekly format here shortly. As we are in the heart of a beautiful New England fall, a time of crisp, beautiful weather, amazing Fall foliage, and spooky happenings all over New England, I wanted to talk about one of the spookier areas of the country that you may not have ever heard about; The Bridgewater Triangle.
The Bridgewater Triangle is an area in Massachusetts with the northern point being the town of Abington, the western point being the town of Rehobeth, and the eastern point being the town of Freetown; it is named the Bridgewater Triangle as the town of Bridgewater sits at the heart of the triangle and holds some of the more active happenings. Just within the last few days a full documentary was released for public viewing at UMass Dartmouth’s campus in Dartmouth Massachusetts detailing the triangle and it’s history. Over 750 people showed up to watch the unfolding of events detailed and captured regarding the triangle. Co-directors Aaron Cadieux and Manny Famolare. Both directors have ties to not only Massachusetts, but the triangle area itself. As the viewing date got closer the buzz began to spread about this project and was even mentioned on a very well known paranormal podcast called Mysterious Universe. With Halloween on the horizon, the release of the documentary, and the fact that I myself lived many years within the triangle, I wanted to talk about some of the more strange occurrences reported within this strange location.
There are so many different stories and so many different reports of all sorts of paranormal phenomenon in this area that it is hard to know where to even begin. Everything from UFO’s to Bigfoot to ghosts, even reports of faeries and trolls have been known to surface from time to time. For this particular posting I’ll focus on two main areas and perhaps relay a good ghost story in the process. The first of two important areas to focus on is the Hockomock Swamp.
