Why Roswell Became a Haven for UFO Fanatics
Roswell, New Mexico, is home to just 48,000 residents but it’s famous the world over for an alleged 1947 UFO crash. Since the purported crash, the town has transformed into a haven for those who believe. The city has space museums, alien-themed restaurants and shops, and sells souvenirs about extraterrestrials. In 1997, Inside Edition paid a visit to see if aliens really do exist if it was simply a way for the residents to cash in on the city’s famous incident.
