Whitehall Bigfoot

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.

Whitehall-BigfootThe 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 a Bigfoot sighting in 1976, and the original officers have recently passed polygraph tests, for the show.

  1. Hi,
    I just want to start by saying , I’m a real person and name withheld for personal reasons.
    I live in Granville NY, not to far from Whitehall. I work as a NYS Correctional Officer.

    I am an avide hunter and outdoors man. I have been hunting on Black Mountain all this year during northern zone. I have been hearing noises like someone or something is taking a log and pounding a tree with it, also I have heard several screeches as I hunt. The most awful feeling is , I feel someone or something watching me everytime I go into this one particular section of the woods.
    I know what coy dogs and every other animal sounds like , but I have never heard the banging or this one particular screech before.

    • I have hunted black mountain in the mid 80s. I was sitting on top of a ridge looking around. the ridge was curved to the left side of me. I heard a tree snap about 20 yards to my left but did not hear it hit the ground. right when I heard the sound the feeling of fear came over me. I was carrying a 30 30 Winchester rifle with 3 bullets in the gun and 9 more on the stock. I went back to the truck and waited for my brother and his friend. I told them what happened and my brother said it was a flock of turkeys that landed in the tree.my brothers friend said did you see the other hunter and we said no. he pointed at trees about 30 yards away and said hes right there in a camo suit looking at us from behind a tree but I did not see anyone and my brother did not either. I haven’t been there in a long time and always wanted to go back but not sure of the area we stayed in. we slept in a van but I kind of remember eating breakfast at a diner I think it was. we went back a week later for the beast feast at a bar or maybe a vfw hall or bpoe, it would be really nice to visit the awesome town of Whitehall again.

  2. Just south of Whitehall in NW Pennsylvania back in 2007 a hunter with a game camera accidentally photographed a juvenile Sasquatch. Scientists reenacted the scenario by taking the picture again with a model to determine the size. They discovered it had the shape of a chimpanzee! As always of coarse the skeptics claim it was a bear but the torso was too short and the limbs too long.

  3. In 1902 manned flight was science fiction, a year later it was reality, and 67 years later man stepped on the moon.. Don’t discount anything.

    • You’re nuts! Too too many sightings and sounds besides nests that they make and that trees get ripped out and stuck upside down by a very strong creature happens as well! You can’t refute or dispell all the other evidence it exists!!
