Alabama Lore

The Choccolocco Monster, Huggin' Molly, the Lost Town of Cottonport and Other Mysterious Tales

Wil Elrick

Alabama is a weird and wonderful place with a colorful history steeped in folk tales passed from generation to generation. Mysterious 1989 UFO sightings brought more than 4,000 visitors to the tiny town of Fyffe, population 1,300. Legends of the Alabama White Thang—an elusive, hairy creature with a shrill shriek—persisted in the state for a century. Just outside Huntsville's historic Maple Hill Cemetery lies an eerie playground where the ghosts of departed children are rumored to play in the dead of night. After hundreds of unexplained sightings, the town of Evergreen declared itself the Bigfoot Capital of Alabama. Join author Wil Elrick as he explores the history behind some of the Cotton State's favorite tales.
