Though seen all over the world, through our recorded history, including ancient cave paintings-----the most famous sightings took place over the entire town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Mothman's interaction with the townsfolk was both horrifying and consistent,................ lasting over a year, from 1966--1967,...an incredible period of time for a cryptid to hang around a singular location.
After the collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, the sightings of this mysterious creature completely faded to a halt, for a long period of time. There have been some reports of Mothman in the area, but nothing on the scale that was seen in 1966-67.
46--- people died in the bridge collapse.
