The Bennington Vermont Triangle



During the time period of 1945 to 1950, there was a rash of disappearances in the Green Mountain area of Bennington, Vermont, which includes the small towns of Bennington, Woodford, Shaftsbury, and Somerset.

In November of 1945, an experienced guide called Middie Rivers disappeared while leading a group of hunters into the mountains near Long Trail Road.

In the early winter of 1946, a college student disappeared while walking on the Long Trail of Glastenbury Mountain. A couple walking approximately 100 yards behind the young woman, Paula Welden, reported she vanished walking around a rocky ledge on the path.

Exactly three years later, to the day, a gentleman living in the Soldier’s Home in Bennington disappeared on a bus traveling from St. Albans to Bennington. The fourteen other passengers all said that the man, James Tetford, was sleeping in his seat. When the bus arrived in Bennington, Tetford’s luggage and bus timetable were still on board, but Tetford was nowhere in sight.

During the Halloween season of 1950, a young boy, Paul Jepson, disappeared from a farm where his mother was working. He was 8 years old.

Not long after Jepson’s disappearance, Freida Langer vanished when she was on her way back to her camp to change clothes after falling in a creek. Her body was found the following spring, and the cause of death was never determined.

Joseph A. Citro, an author from the New England area, has written two books about the southwestern area of Vermont, which he calls the “Bennington Triangle.”

In addition to the disappearances, there have been other odd anomalies reported including Big Foot type cryptids, weird lights and sounds, and even UFOs.

Native Americans believed the land in this area was “cursed because all four winds meet in that spot.”

Some people believe that the area might have been a portal to another dimension. Others suggest alien abduction. Still others believe in a legend about a cursed stone that consumes anyone who comes close to it.
