Salisbury, N.C
.

The History

We we
re contacted by Juleigh Barber
,

the

owner of Club 315 in Salisbury, N.C. The Club,
located at 315 East Council Street
,

has a rich history.

A

structure was b
uilt in the early
1900’s
and is pr
esent on the
Salisbury City map

dating back to 1903.

This

original building predates the
current structure as it was built toward the bac
k of the property.

It

was listed as a private
residence

from

1903
-
1951
.


This backs up the claims by the owner that the home was
once a
tenant house. Juleigh

s father had spoken to the late Le
o Wallace of Wallace Realty when

his
daughter purchased the property.

Mr. Wallace explained that he had collected rent

on the home
back in those days.
The property

was

purchased by Armour Me
ats

in 1951, a
nd the current
building was constructed
.


Armour

operated out of the building from 1951
-
1960, before being
purchased by Saleeby Wholesale Produce in 1962.

In 1964 the building became the home of
Antosek & Sons
,

who were luggage manufacturers
.

The details on owner
ship

after 1964 are a
little sketchy.

The building has changed hands many ti
mes over the last 40 years
.
Juleigh
purchased the property six years ago, and opened Club 315.

The business has a dedicated local
cliental that frequent t
he bar daily
.

The Claims

Dozens of people have seen the apparition of a man in the bar.

To some, he looks like the
shadow of a person, to others he appears more clearly. The o
wner
,

Juleigh

Barber

has seen the
man

daily for the last six years.

She
claims th
at he is seen at all hours of the day

and night
.

On
one occasion, Juleigh saw the apparition on a security camera located just outside the entrance of
the bar. He had his hands extended out as if to keep someone out of the doorway.

When we
aske
d during the investigation what he was trying to do
,

we caught an EVP that says “Protect
her”. Perhaps he feels that he is assisting Juleigh during the night

or watching over her
.
According to eye witnesses, he

comes into the

bar, and walks the path alon
g the

wall running
parallel

with

the bar.

Once at the end of the wall, he leans against it as if he is just
“hanging

out

.

The
patron
s of the bar have

nicknamed him
“The

Innkeeper”
.

When we asked Juleigh if
she ever tried to speak with him
,

she said that she acknowledges him with a nod, b
ut has

never
tried to speak to

him. Several bartenders have quit their jobs, t
elling Juleigh that they felt a

prese
nce

behind the bar
. One employee claims that she

saw a man on the stage area reserved for
the band.

The

man, wearing overalls and a cap, walked across the stage and disappeared into
thin air.

Bartender
,

Kenny,
saw a full body apparition of a man in the front storage area. The
man appeared to be leaning against the doorway.



The
Investigatio
n

Temp
erature
: Outdoors 78°

F.

Temp
erature
: Indoors 77°

F.

Conditions
: Clear & Mild

EMF
: High levels of electromagnetic field (30+mG) behind the bar, and video gaming
equipment.

This
is near
the area where the man
is seen. We also found high levels of
EMF by the f
ront do
or of the outer building
. A reading of 25+mG was consistent in the
middle of the doorway that appeared to hang in mid air. We could not find a rational
explanation for this anomaly. We did captur
e several EVP’s during this encounter tha
t
appeared to be claiming credit.

IR Cameras
: 8 cameras set up during the investigation. No anomalies detected.

Digital and 35 mm Cameras
: Multiple photos take
n during the night. One photo contains an
unidentified male. We had three male investigators on this case,
but this photo shows a male wearing a coat. All of our
investigators were in t
-
shirts due to the warm temperature we had
that evening. The photo somehow shows the upper half of the
figure
above the bar, but does not show the lower half of his
body.


He seems to stand
in the bar

itself
.

Digital Recordings
: 26 Electronic Voice
Phenomenon

capt
ured during the investigation, t
he

best of which will be presented below this article for your con
sideration.


We sat up our IR cameras

to basically cover

the entire bar including the basement, which had not
been used in six years. As in all of our investigations, we must wait until we review our
evidence before we can determine if we have captured paranormal activity
.

Severa
l times during
the night
,

inve
stigators thought that they heard audible responses

to their

questions. Later, EVP
analysis reve
a
led that we had indeed captured the disembodied voice of a man.

The responses
given were direct answers to our questions.
Investigators Mark and Christian p
laced IR Cameras
and a digital recorder in the basement. In order to access this space you must

first

crawl inside a
small scuttle hole, located just under the stage area, and

then

crawl several feet before reaching
the steps

leading

to the basement below
.
As

the two

men
were about to en
ter the area
,

Marks


digital rec
order picked up an EVP that said

“We aren’t down there”.

Perhaps the spirit was
trying to save them the trouble.

Mark and Christian also discovered a high EMF in the doorway of the front of

the building.
There

was no power on in

the building, and the EMF hung

in midair. When the investigator
would lower his hand with the KII Meter or raise it to the door frame, the anomaly would
dissipate. As he would center th
e doorway
,

the high reading
of 25
+mG would return. During
this encounter we also had our recorders running. During evidence review Christian is heard
asking other investigators what they thought could possibly be the cause of the high EMF, and an
EVP is captured that says “It was m
e”.


We were still discussing this anomaly when we walked
back into the main bar area
, and we captured

an EVP that says “I fooled you”.

From listening to
the EVP evidence it is appears

that the spirit was tagging along with us during
the investigation. H
e is heard making intelligent comments all during the night
,

and at times was
playful

in his responses. Toward

the end of our investig
ation Juleigh

suggested that we just sit
and pretend we were having a party. She felt that a regular bar type
atmosphere

might
bring the
apparition into the bar. At the completion of our investigation we asked Juleigh to
bring up the
house lights
. We captured an EVP that says

“Get

the lights” as if

he is trying to help.

Interesting

EVP
’s were captured when investigator D
onna asked
the spirit to stand with her for a photo. She
stood in the area where the man is seen most and ask
ed him to join her. The EVP’
s

during this
session

capture the man as he says “ cheese” on the first photo an
d “ Say Cheese” on the second.
It’s q
uite amazing to hear.

Our Conclusions

Our

investigation produced a total of 26 EVP’s, and some interesting experiences for our team.
The high EMF readings behind the bar can certainly contribute to the experiences of former
bartenders. High EMF can produc
e a plethora of effects on people. Some may feel as they are
being watched, while others

may

experience physical ailments

such as fatigue, or nausea
.

There
are also
t
heori
es

suggest
ing

that spirits can utilize high electromagnetic fields to help them
man
ifest.


We have a picture that shows a male standing at the bar, that is not a member of our
team.

It would appear that both of these
phenomenons

are occurring at Club 315.


We would like to thank Juleigh Barber for inv
iting our team
to investigate her
business
.
