COUNTY: Floyd County
LOCATION DETAILS: Spotted at foot of second driveway after RR tracks going up "Edwardsville Hill" (old SR 64 West).
NEAREST TOWN: Edwardsville
NEAREST ROAD: Corydon Pike (old SR 64)
OBSERVED: In 1996 in late November on a Sat. about 12:30 a.m. my daughter and I were driving back to my home at Laconia, Indiana. Instead of driving down SR 111 we decided to take Corydon Pike up the hill to Edwardsville and then on to Elizabeth, Indiana. I have never been afraid to drive up Edwardsville Hill and still not. On this night the moon was out and through the trees you could see some moonlight. We were driving along talking and crossed the railroad tracks going up the hill. The road is very winding, with dips and curves. On the second curve it dips down and comes back up so your car lights are hitting an old driveway up to someones home on top of the hill. Just as we started to come out of the dip, our car lights showed a large hairy figure sitting on an old felled tree at the foot of this driveway. My daughter screamed and said give the car some gas. I did so, but I wanted to go back and see what it was sitting there. My daughter said, "No Mom , whatever it is leave it alone". I have lived here most of my life and have been afraid to tell anyone of what we saw. My son said, " there is no such thing as a Bigfoot" but I believe there is. I have always been told there are things in the world unexplained. This is one of them. Just another one of God's creatures.
ALSO NOTICED: We did not linger to find out if there was anything odd or not. My daughter would not let me go back.
OTHER WITNESSES: Myself and my daughter.
OTHER STORIES: I read an artical in the Tribune here in New Albany after we had seen something on Edwardsville Hill but I have been afraid until now to say anything. People around here make fun of you over this kind of sighting.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: About 12:30 a.m. -cool, moonlight
ENVIRONMENT: Enclosed with trees and rocky hillside area. Old driveway, I believe is used only to get their mail now. Lots of underbrush.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jim Osborne:
I spoke with the witness and the only additional details regarding the creatures appearance that she could provide are that it had very long arms and that the head was rounded with long hair, not conical on top.
