Haunted Karsten Hotel up for sale in Wisconsin (video)

KEWAUNEE, Wis -- The Karsten Hotel was built by William Karsten in 1912. It has three stories, 23 rooms, and apparently three spirits haunting the building.

Owner David Watters says, "I did not believe in ghosts before I bought this place, but at this point in time, I'm a firm believer. There's things that I cant explain."

Watters bought the hotel in April 2013, and since he's been in charge, he's heard countless stories; some mention noises of children playing in the hall, others have seen random objects moving. Watters says the stories are all consistent, too.

"That consistency and that trend; it doesn't take long to put two and two together and see something is going on," Watters said.

The hotel is up for auction now, and Watters hopes that a new buyer can love and respect the building's historical beauty... even the ghosts.

Local restaurant owner Randy Vandenack said the first time he came to the hotel, he definitely suspected some paranormal activity.

"When we got to the third floor, the windows were wide open, the curtains were blowing. It was incredibly erie to go to a hotel in the middle of winter, it was about 10 below that day, and to find windows open," Vandenack said.
