  1. I lived in Colstrip for 7 years, I can say that I heard multiple reports of many different places there being haunted. One super haunted place is the Whiskey Gulch Saloon. I worked there (for a little over a year) and while closing it was not uncommon to have the tv’s change channels or turn off/on, or hear pool balls clanking around in the pool room upstairs. There were a few times I would hear pots and pans BANGING around in the kitchen that’s attached to the bar (after the people who ran the restaurant had left) I would go check and No One would be there. There are several spirits there, too many to write about each one that I saw. SOME show up in pictures, I used to have are few, but sadly the camera they were on no longer works. And there was one night that I as closing and turned around and saw a man in khaki pants, and a white hoodie with blue writing standing in the middle of the dance floor plain as day! Then he vanished. Many bartenders have made comments about this place being haunted, until I worked there I didn’t believe it myself.

  2. I have lived in Colstrip for almost two years now and worked at the whiskey gulch saloon for a year and half. On a regular basis many odd situations take place. The most regular one is the footsteps up the stairs and then the commencement of a pool game starting though no one but myself is in the bar. The occasional mount just happens to fall off the wall when no one is around. This location has a long history and a very horrific event happen on the property. The spirits of the victims of this horrific event make themselves evident at all times. I worked this last year on the anniversary of the shooting and needless to say it was a very active night in the bar with the spirits.

  3. I worked at the plant for 3 years now and today I had my first big accident. I went to the bathroom today and there’s a can of air freshener sitting on the back of the toilet, no where close to the edge. I go to the sink to wipe off the seat because I’m slightly a germaphobe, i look up and as i am directly staring at the air freshener, it looked like it got swiped the can and hit the wall about a foot away from where it was positioned then fell to the ground. I do believe in spirits and ghost but I have never had anything like that happen to me before. It was exciting but scary at the same time. There’s another thing I hear at the plant from multiple employees saying they can still hear banging with a hammer inside a vessel… the same vessel an employee had died after a long fall a long time ago. I do believe the place is haunted.
