The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register, dated November 16, 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird ... Creature ... Something".The national press soon picked up the reports and helped spread the story across the United States. An annual festival in Point Pleasant is devoted to the Mothman legend.
