Pose with Flatwoods Monster
Sutton, West Virginia
The Braxton County Convention and Visitors Bureau operates its office in an outlet mall, and offers a small stock of replica monsters for sale. Historical accounts tell us that the creature, variously know as the Flatwoods Monster, Braxton County Monster, or Green Monster (it glowed green), appeared next to a space ship that had landed. It was not an adorable, or even friendly, alien.
One item in the office is definitely not for sale, not even at full price: a life-size replica of the monster, which looks like it was made of stuffed fabric and PVC pipe. Visitors to the office are welcome to pose with it for souvenir snapshots. According to director Tammy Dickens, the alien was made by someone in the community, then donated to the CVB as a permanent display.
