Historic Marker for UFO Abduction?

(L) Betty and Barney Hill. (R) The historic marker.

The internet is abuzz with reports that New Hampshire has put up an official historic marker for the first widely reported alien abduction. A prominent example is “Betty And Barney Hill UFO Abduction Story Commemorated On Official N.H. Highway Plaque” at Huffington Post:

New Hampshire — the “Live Free or Die” state — has done something that may surprise UFO believers as well as skeptics. It has just erected a historical marker commemorating the 50th anniversary close encounter of Betty and Barney Hill.

Curiously, this marker is unacknowledged by the New Hampshire Division of Historical Resources official website. Another page on the site sorting the markers by town yields the same negative result.

We can only hope that the truth is out there!

Update 09/03/2011: The New Hampshire state list now includes the Betty and Barney Hill Marker, #224, in Lincoln.
