Winchester Mystery House

Winchester Mystery House This historic 160-room Victorian mansion was built by Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester Rifle fortune. The many oddities gave the house its name.
(9393)

This historic, 5.5 million dollar, beautiful but bizarre, 160-room Victorian mansion was once the home of Sarah L. Winchester, heiress to the Winchester Rifle fortune. Under construction 24-hours a day for 38 years, the mansion has many mysteries inside. There are doors and windows that open onto walls; doors that open to a 10 foot drop into the gardens; stairs which go nowhere; and employees and guests have reported sightings. It is believed that after the death of her husband and daughter, Mrs. Winchester was convinced by a medium that continuous building would appease the evil spirits of those killed by the Winchester rifle, and help her attain eternal life. - Tours Daily - Historic Firearms Museum - Antique Products Museum - Flashlight Tours - San Jose Attraction

Want to hear haunted legends as you explore the house at nighttime with nothing but a flashlight? 👻🏠🔦

One morning, long-time maintenance manager Denny heard the patter of footsteps above. He ascended to let the trespasser know the three-story structure was off-limits. But the footsteps always seemed to be one step ahead of him, and, one floor above. His search culminated on the roof, with no one in sight.
