The world famous Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California, is an extravagant maze of Victorian craftsmanship – marvelous, baffling, eerily eccentric, and undeniably, haunted. Wander through 110 of the 160 rooms of this Victorian mansion, designed and built by the Winchester Rifle heiress Sarah Winchester. For nearly thirty-eight years the round-the-clock sawing, sanding, and hammering at the Winchester Mystery House never ceased. Was Sarah cursed by the ghosts of those killed by the Winchester rifle or did she use the endless building and rebuilding as a distraction from grief over the deaths of her loved ones? The mystery shrouding the Winchester Mystery House may never allows us to separate fact from the legend.www.winchestermysteryhouse.com
