One of life’s great mysteries, the Bridgewater Triangle.This is a triangle where many incidents have happened which are very mysterious.
1. The Bridgewater Triangle Area
The inland Bridgewater Triangle Area may not be an ‘official’ vile vortex but it certainly has to be likely one of world’s most concentrated areas of diverse paranormal reports.
Located just 30 miles south of Boston, this 200-mile square area has the Massachusetts towns of Abington, Freetown and Rehoboth at its angles.
The town of Bridgewater is located nearly dead center within the triangle and the area also encompasses six other Massachusetts towns: Raynham, Taunton, Brockton, Mansfield, Norton and Easton.
2. The Hockomock Swamp
This is a 5000+ acre area that lies within the western section of Bridgewater Triangle and is the hub of many paranormal reports. It also happens to be the site of an 8,000 year old Native American burial ground, when archaeologists opened the graves of Grassy Island, the red ochre within the tombs bubbled and then mysteriously disappeared. Photographs taken of the excavation would not develop.
The swamp remains shrouded in superstition. Called, “the place where spirits dwell” by the Wampanoag Tribe of the Native American Algonquian nation, the Wampanoag avoided the Hockomock Swamp and the area remains a place filled with foreboding.
4. Dighton Rock
Dighton Rock lies across from the Grassy Island Burial Grounds of Hockomock Swamp on the banks of the Tauntaon river. You shall find numerous inscriptions of unknown origins carved into the face of the rock. Although various speculations attribute them to Native Americans, Vikings, and even Phoenicians, their identity has never been specifically determined.
5. Profile Rock
Now this one too has quite a paranormal reputation. Located in Freetown, from a nearby hill, the rock shows a clear portrait of a Native American face looking out from the stone. Long before Massachusetts colonists arrived, the Wampanoag people considered Profile Rock sacred. Local legends claim that Native American ghost dancers in warrior dress dance around Profile Rock
7. Anawan Rock
Located in Hockomock Swamp along Route 44 in Rehoboth, Anawan Rock is named for Chief Anawan and is the site where Chief Anawan surrendered to the colonists, ending “King Phillip’s War”. Legend says that the angry spirits of Chief Anawan’s warriors continue to haunt the area, starting spectral fires and “ghost dancing”.
8. Bridgewater Triangle Phenomena
Loren Coleman, a Paranormal researcher named the Bridgewater Triangle in 1970, revived public attention to the many paranormal reports emanating from the area.
