Point Pleasant, West Virginia, has a legend, along the lines of Bigfoot, about the Mothman. Back in the sixties, there were sightings of a creature here with a seven foot wingspan, about seven feet tall, with glowing red eyes. Sighted by many people over a period of more than a year, the creature made the town famous. Both a book and a movie were made of the legend. Additionally, the bridge over the Ohio River collapsed about that time and the creature was blamed for having a hand in that.

I'll post the photos I took of the statue that resides in the center of town, and in the Mothman Museum, but for more details, you can google Mothman on Wikipedia.
