Inside the Bridgewater Triangle
Globe File Photo
At the center of the triangle is Hockomock Swamp, the largest swampland in New England, and one that is rich in animal, plant, and geologic diversity. The dense surroundings mean that it's a very difficulty place to navigate, which leads some to believe that certain creatures could lurk in the swamp undetected. The Wampanoag tribe gave the spot the name Hockomock, which means "place where spirits dwell, and Colonial settlers called it "Devil's Swamp." Some of the strange sightings reported here include various flying creatures and ghosts.
