This week, we have a story that was sent to us by a fan who may have had an encounter with one of the men in black while working at The Mothman Museum in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.
When the Mothman Museum was in its original location in the early 2000s, myself, an employee and my grandfather had a strange encounter. A Young guy, Mid 20’s, wearing sunglasses, a black suit, tie and shoes entered the museum and began asking questions about the Point Pleasant Mothman and UFO sightings while referencing the movie “The Cell” . As the questions continued I began to get more and more creeped out until I finally called for our other employee who was working in the back. The guy eventually began to wrap up his strange interrogation of us when my grandfather entered the museum, but before our visitor left the museum he asked if we had “Any complimentary tobacco products or Licorice?”. We explained to him, no we did not, and he left. Once he was out of the museum my grandfather asked if any of us had noticed how strange his shoes were. My grandfather described them as “having thick soles, 2 1/2 to 3 inches thick”.
The person who sent me this story mentioned that they get all kinds of odd visitors. I’ve seen a lot of weird things myself when I’ve gone in. They mentioned that this experience has always stuck out to them. Especially the part where they asked for complimentary tobacco products or Licorice. It’s like the guy didn’t know what year it was.
Big thanks to the anonymous Mothman Museum employee who sent this story in. Those were definitely some off behaviors mentioned. I myself have seen some strange things from people while at the museum, but nothing like that!
