The Winchester Mystery House, is perhaps one of the most peculiar haunted houses in the United States. In 1884 the widowed Sarah Winchester started construction on a home for herself, and the estranged spirits caused by the Winchester arms. The house was constructed per the advice of a medium and it was worked and developed for near fourty years. Miss Winchester, never stayed in the same room too long for fear the spirits would get her.
The Winchester Mystery House is now open to the public as a museum. The giant hosue features such things as doors to nowhere, and stairs leading to ceilings, as well as a repetition of the number 13. If you have opportunity to and are in the San Jose, California area it is well worth a visit too.
