On this day in 1903, the Van Meter Visitor arrived in the small town of Van Meter, Iowa. The monster is described as being seven feet tall, resembling pterodactyl, and having a large horn on its head that emits a bright, search beam like light. Witnessed by dozens, the creature terrorized the community for several days before allegedly being sealed in a mine shaft by a mob of angry townsfolk.
