Welcome to the Hatman Project
Hello. My name is Timothy M. Brown, Jr. and I am the site owner, administrator, and researcher for The Hat Man Project. The purpose of this site is to research the phenomenon that has come to be known as “The Hat Man.” Reports of The Hat Man and other shadow beings have been on the rise within the last several decades. It was due to my own experience with this being, as well as my awareness of other people’s sightings of The Hat Man that I decided to begin this research project.
I started this project in 2001, collecting what few stories I could find on the web at the time. Since that time, this site has received hundreds of stories from people all over the world. It has taken me the better part of 20 years to fully understand what this phenomenon is all about. And after years of research I have finally come a conclusion of who or what the Hatman is, why he is appearing now, why he is appearing to people all over the world, and what to do if you are (or have had) and encounter with him.
I am currently writing a book about the Hatman called The Hatman Revealed. In this book I plan to go into detail about the commonalities of the many hundreds of stories we’ve received over the years and what those commonalities reveal about this being and phenomenon. There will be no cost for this book, and I believe that this has become more of a mission of mine more than anything else. This information needs to get out there.
The aim of this website is to explore the stories of the many sightings that have been reported. This is the very first and only web site solely devoted to researching, collecting, and archiving information and stories relating to The Hat Man. As more stories are researched and collected they will be posted on this site regularly.
Have you seen the Hatman? If you or anyone you know has had this experience, we would love to hear from you and add your story to this site. If you have a sighting or an encounter you would like to tell, please post your story here to the right of this page. Once reviewed we will post it online and give others a chance to comment on it. We look forward to hearing from you. If you would like to reach out to us personally, you may do so by contacting us here.

Hat Man At My Grandparents
I was roughly about 11 or 12 sleeping in my grandparent's bedroom with my sister. I woke but couldn't move... Then I noticed the hat man sitting at the edge of the bed turned slightly. I couldn't see any features on him but I could feel him staring at me and I was screaming inside my mind but felt powerless. I tried to wake up my sister and then finally I was able to move and wake her up. She saw nothing. My grandparent's house was owned by my grandfather's family before them, so it was an older house in Loveland
I saw him when I was 15
I saw him in 2014, I was 15 at the time and was going to bed. I and my grandma were alone in the house. And this was a regular home, no fancy things, just a basic condo. Our house was nearly impossible to break into since we had a security guy at the entrance and our condo was on 3rd floor. That night after saying goodnight to my grandma I climbed up from my bed and was checking on my phone. Then suddenly my door started to open. Curiously looked at the door because I thought my grandma came
The Black Figure
I saw the hat man when I was younger, but I don't remember exactly how old I was. I remember seeing him as if it only happened yesterday. I was in my aunt's house it was late at night everyone was asleep except for me and my cousin, I was waiting for my mom to come to pick me up to go home. My cousin eventually fell asleep on me, so I was all by myself and I had to go to the bathroom. So I get up and head to the bathroom and I stopped dead in my tracks.
I Saw The Hatman In The Basement
Hi, there everyone my name is Owen and I'm currently 17. I encountered "The Hatman", it was just a few months ago. My older brother moved out I had taken his spot in the basement for the room and privacy. It was around the second or third night I had started sleeping down there, and that's when it happened. It began as a normal night and I had just gotten into bed a had finally fallen asleep. Sometime around midnight, something strange woke me up. When I first opened my eyes it seemed like static was covering them and I
It Could Have Been My Imagination
Part 1 Ok, so I saw this "hat man" when I was like, 8, and it was when I was in my parents' bed. My story seems a Lil different than most of the others because I wasn't paralyzed, frightened, or deeply affected in any way after the encounter. As abnormal as my story is going to sound, I'm going to include as many details as possible and ensure you that EVERYTHING I say is 100% true and that I'm sure of it, instead of a bunch of "I think I saw's...?" Ok. Oh and by the way, I read
Till We Meet Again
I saw the hat man when I was only 9 at the time I was, well not scared but I couldn't sleep I just watched him and he watched me. We stayed like that for some time just looking at each other. After he left I fell asleep. Then I saw him again 2 weeks later. He was in the living room and I was in the kitchen mom and dad were gone, and my sister was upstairs. I didn't mind him if he was like 10 feet away. Then the phone rang and as my sister came he left.
Out Of The Side Of My Sight
Ok, so I have this theory about my house. We bulldozed and built our house on old farmland. In the first years we had a few run-ins with Disembodied voices, music, or the sound of running water that could not be explained. So I decided to try that thing that was in the “6th Sense” Where he has a recording of static then he turns it up and hears a ghost. Well, I tried that with an old Tape recorder. I let this thing record from midnight to 1. The first 15 minutes are nothing… after that… weird shit starts
