New Hampshire — the “Live Free or Die” state — has done something that may surprise UFO believers as well as skeptics. It has just erected a historical marker commemorating the 50th anniversary close encounter of Betty and Barney Hill.
The Hills’ story is undoubtedly the most famous of all UFO experiences because (as the official plaque reads) it was “the first widely-reported UFO abduction report in the United States.”
It was also the first time that anyone in this country had reported undergoing invasive physical examinations at the hands of short, “grey” aliens.
“To tell you the truth, we were very excited about the prospect,” said Elizabeth Muzzey, director of the N.H. Division of Historical Resources, which created the new historic plaque.
