Legend speaks of an ape-like creature who called Upper Cleveland County home in the late 1970s.
Robert Williams, then covering the news for Charlotte media outlets, named him "Knobby," a towering beast many considered as the resident Bigfoot.
Williams never saw Knobby — "I only wrote what I was told."
Knobby stories flew overseas, Williams said, drawing interest from New Zealand and beyond. Newspaper articles from 1979 detail more than a dozen Knobby sightings and investigations by the North American Research Association and researchers from a university in Massachusetts. But the rumors and sightings near Carpenter's Knob — hence the creature's name — mysteriously stopped decades ago.
