The Creatures of Hockomock Swamp

Gravel road in a forest

Located in the area known as the Bridgewater Triangle, in Massachusetts, the Hockomock Swamp is a 200-square-mile murky wetland with a bloody past and a perplexing present. For decades, local paranormal expert, Chris Pittman, has documented bizarre UFO sightings, cryptid encounters, and hauntings in the area. And now, for the first time, the Manzella family has come forward to speak of their bizarre experiences in the swamp’s mossy thickets and cemeteries—experiences that they cannot explain. Could the Hockomock Swamp be a portal to the unexplained?

    When I lived in Myricks mass (part of Berkley Mass. ) I use to see the clan of devil worshipers going through the backfield behind my house with their black hooded capes on, chanting and carrying lanterns. Also, there were strange lanterns coming down the dirt road next to the church off of Rt. 79 in Myricks.

      Amazing!! What time frame was this?? I was out Coon hunting one night (fall of 88-89) and I snuck up on a black mass in the middle of the woods, WAY out in the woods and with all the Satanic Panic going on back then I was scared to death!!! Very very interested in hearing about your experience in more detail if you have time. Thanx

    I grew up in Abington, one of the points of the triangle. I’ve never had any UFO or bigfoot experiences personally, however, I have had my own involving what I assume would be Pukwudgies, once in the early 2000’s and again near my current home which is about 20 miles from Freetown about 3 years ago. My mother has also told me of a friend of hers that has had what they assume was a bigfoot type creature pound the roof of the car leaving dents, and remembers the attacks made on someone’s livestock just down the road from our family’s house that was supposed to have involved the infamous black dog, both occuring in the 70’s.

    This episode calls for a follow-up on Chris Pittman and his research: things that happened to him: his files disappearing, the helicopters, emails, etc.

    Is this possibly connected to the Dover Demon? It seems like these events happened around the same area. For those who don’t know, two kids saw this white creature with tendril fingers, a large head and a glowing eyes in Dover, MA. Dover seems to be near the Hockomock swamp.

      The boundaries of the Triangle are fluid. Even though Dover is pretty far outside those lines, there always seems to be little tentacles that reach out.

    Hey, there’s a typo on this page. The hockomock swamp is a “200-square-MILE area” not a 200-sq-FOOT area in bridgewater mass. Just giving h you a heads up… I imagine most cryptids might need more than a 10x20ft area to call home!!

    I believe her, but I strongly believe that the devil always uses things that throughout the years we created to believe and he manipulates our minds when it is him and his demons who hide is disguise.
