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.

Short Hat Man?

By |August 27th, 2021|

I’ve had sleep paralysis a handful of times, but this is the only time the figure had the hat. I woke up in my room unable to move and looked to my left and a figure with that hat on was standing next to my bed, except it was short like a child instead of tall like a man. Maybe it was his kid getting trained? Lmao but it was still terrifying

Man In Hat – My Encounter

By |August 27th, 2021|

Once when I was about 7-8 years old, I encountered this man. I was in my room and it was past my bedtime. I was trying so hard to sleep but couldn’t. I gazed around the room.

It Was Supposed To Be Nap Time

By |August 27th, 2021|

When people ask me, "Have you ever seen a ghost?" I always say, "I think so." I've seen a lot of things I can't explain but the most solid of my encounters was with the Hat Man. I was around 5 or 6 years old and taking a nap during the daytime. I remember waking up, but my eyes still closed as something in my body told me not to open them. I didn't keep them closed, however. When I opened them, I sat up and was instantly met with a very large shadow man wearing a short Abraham Lincoln

Shadow Man In The Doorway

By |August 27th, 2021|

I experienced the hat man, but never saw him wearing a hat. I’ve had nightmares as a kid of “shadow creatures” darting through the bushes following me, and an intense fear of open doors at night while I’m sleeping, especially the closet. Growing up, I had these fears and bad dreams, but never experienced the shadow man until I was in my 20s. I was in my late grandpas basement alone watching netflix hanging out (I lived there at the time) No one else home, late afternoon, sun still up. Looking straight ahead at the tv on the wall, the

Just Learning I’m Not The Only One Whose Seen This

By |August 27th, 2021|

When I was 16 or 17, I'm 34 now, a friend and I were messing with a tape recorder (trying for white noise) at a closed elementary school, during broad daylight. We hopped a fence to be along a tree line to hold the recorder. We were standing next to a tree, both crouched down for a few minutes, in silence, until my legs started to hurt and I stood up. The moment I stood up and directly beyond my friend, was a tall man, fists clenched, 6 or 7 feet tall, wearing a long jacket, staring directly at us.

Hatman In The Countryside In Poland

By |August 27th, 2021|

After watching a documentary series about spiritualists this year, I realized that what I saw in my childhood might be something more people saw. I saw the hatmen when I was about 11 years old. Then we lived in the countryside in a L-shaped house. I was passing from the kitchen to the room, these rooms were divided by a long corridor at the end of which was my room. When I came back the corridor was bright as if someone had switched on a light, everything looked sepia. At the end of the corridor, I saw a dark faceless
