Mothman Welcomes You to West Virginia!

There is, as far as we know, only one Mothman, and he is from West Virginia.

There is also only one Mothman Museum, and it's in West Virginia, in Point Pleasant to be exact.

There is of course only one West Virginia, and that is West-By-God-Virginia.

And there is only one Gary Gibeaut as far as anyone knows. He's from West Virginia, too, just like Mothman.

So when you come into West Virginia and stop at a welcome center, like the one on Interstate 68 near Hazelton, you might find an advertising card about the world's only Mothman Museum, located on the opposite end of the state in Point Pleasant. And if you look closely at that brochure, you will see Gary Gibeaut's Mothman artwork, which is on prominent display at the museum.

Now if you want any of Gary's artwork, you don't have to settle for an advertising card found at a welcome center. Instead, you can go to the Mothman Museum where you will find Gary's posters, comic books, postcards, stickers, and pins. They don't have to be Gary's, though. They can be yours, too, for the right price. Better yet, you can go to the Mothman Festival, this year on the weekend of September 16-17, and meet Gary Gibeaut in person, talk to him, and ask him to sign his artwork for you.

Even so, you might hang onto that card you found at the welcome center. After all, it led you to Point Pleasant, home of the world's only Mothman. (We think.)
