The Winchester Mystery House Haunted Happenings

    • Society & Culture

In 1886, Sarah Winchester inherited a fortune and moved from CT to San Jose, CA. It's said that a psychic medium instructed her to move there, and to build a magnificent house in order to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by the Winchester Rifle Company she had inherited. But there was one catch -- if she ever stopped building onto the house, she would die.

Mrs. Winchester drew up plans for rooms without any knowledge of architecture -- plans supposedly given to her by the spirits. She hired carpenters to work around the clock, night and day to build her incredible house. Building went on continuously until her death in 1922. Today, the 161 room labyrinth of a mansion is known as the Winchester Mystery House.
