Winchester Mystery House, San Jose

The Winchester Mystery House is one property that certainly lives up to its name! Construction began in 1884 and it never really stopped until the owner, Sarah Winchester passed away on September, 5 1922. It is believed that she spent around $5 million on construction. Why? Well, because Sarah was convinced that her home was haunted by all of the victims killed by a Winchester Rifle and that the only way to quiet the spirits was to keep on building! Sarah may well have been correct, because since the mansion was opened up to the public in 1923 staff and visitors alike have reported several mischievous spirits in the building.  One particular story that stands out  is a photograph taken inside the house of a ghostly male in a workman’s overall. It has been suggested that he could be one of Sarah Winchester’s carpenters still working on the continuous construction even after his death!
