Whitehall, New York a village and a town in Washington County, New York. Both are on the Vermont border at the south end of Lake Champlain and lie between Lake Champlain and Lake George has been called the birthplace of the U. S. Navy.
But is also famous for having a long history of reporting’s and sightings of alleged Bigfoot’s going all the way back to Indian folklore.
Even though it’s a small township on the eastern border of New York’s Adirondack Mountain Preserve, it’s been considered by bigfoot researchers and hunters alike of being somewhat of a hotspot for North American Bigfoot activities.
The elusive Bigfoot/Sasquatch has been spotted in Whitehall dozens of times between 1959 and the present, according to a local bigfoot researcher there are several sightings every year. In fact, the village board has taken this so much to heart, they have actually approved a resolution that makes it illegal to hunt the bigfoot creature, so no Bigfoot hunting expeditions in Whitehall allowed.
The town board approved the resolution without considerable discussion after a motion by Councilman Bruce Angus and a second from Councilman Stephen Lane. The resolution warns against “the willful premeditated act of killing” a Bigfoot. The town board unanimously approved a protecting ordinance against harming or killing a Sasquatch, only the third municipal body to ever pass an ordinance for a creature that still has not been proven to even exist.
Although for the record, “I think it’s going to be a good thing for tourism and publicity, It can’t hurt.” Supervisor Vernon Scribner said.
Profiled on the show MonsterQuest (the History channel), “the Monster of Whitehall” the Bigfoot creature reportedly stands 7 to 8 feet tall, strange high pitch screaming, walks like a gorilla hunched over. Several police officers reported Bigfoot sightings in 1976, and the original officers have recently passed polygraph tests, for the show.
