We asked people at a bar that's more than 100 years old if they are

A group of paranormal investigators say the ghost stories you may
hear about ten places in the Chippewa
Valley are facts.
We talked with people at Eisold's Irvine Bar about hauntings and
ghosts after a paranormal investigation.
They chose the Irvine Bar because lots of people tell stories about the
ghost of a former owner tapping them on
the shoulder, or experiencing other
things they can't explain.
Ellie Whitrock of Chippewa Falls says she was once shoved really
hard against the wall at the bar, and
nobody was behind her.
"So yeah, I do believe there's ghosts," she said.
"Yeah, I guess I believe in ghosts," said Skip Battcher of Chippewa
Falls. "I don't know! I don't know! It's
hard to explain a lot of things."
Michell Eisold says she never believed in ghosts, until she bought
the place two years ago. She also says
two people have quit under her watch
because of things they couldn't explain.
Eisold says one of them saw things
falling from a kitchen shelf. She says
the other was at the grill when all of a
sudden he saw a man go down a nearby
staircase. He followed him downstairs
and didn't see anybody, then came back
up and found that door was locked.
Not all the customers believe the hype.
David King of Chippewa Falls says getting tapped on the shoulder
might mean you have a muscle cramp.
"I never have believed in ghosts, and i think it's the phenomenon
to the individual," he said.
The investigation didn't uncover any ghosts, at least, none that we
That didn't sway what the two investigators believe.
"There's always going to be skeptics no matter what you're talking
about," said Paranormal Investigator
Chris Wiener. "Ghosts, landing on the
moon, whatever, there's always skeptics
and there's always believers and it's
just a matter of staying the course."
It's what they hope will help them explain the unexplained in
places that people say are haunted.
When we asked investigator Terry Fisk what ghosts look like, he
told us they reportedly appear as either
solid or transparent apparitions,
shadowy figures, glowing figures,
nebulous mists, or orbs of light.
