Winchester House is a mansion in San Jose, California once owned by Sarah Winchester, widow of William Winchester – originator of Winchester guns. After William’s death Sarah inherited 20 million dollars, but some say she believed the money to be haunted by the souls of those killed by Winchester guns. In 1884, Sarah Winchester bought a plot of land and started building a house that was never to be finished. Sarah believed that in order to keep the ghosts that haunted her at bay, that she must have the house built in such a way that they couldn’t find her; so you have a house 7 stories tall, with doors that go to nowhere, stairs that lead to ceilings, and more confusing passages.
