The legendary Winchester Mystery House tale gained popularity because the 160-room mansion is the result of a continuous building effort conducted by Sarah Winchester, widow of William Winchester, founder of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. Beginning in 1884, Mrs. Winchester had construction conducted upon the home 24 hours a day, every day of the year, until her death in 1922. Legend has it the spirits of the people who were killed by her husband’s products haunted Mrs. Winchester. The residence has doorways opening to blank walls, staircases leading to ceilings and a host of other abnormalities. Despite its 40 bedrooms, the home has but one functioning bathroom, presumably to confuse the spirits. Learn more about the Winchester Mystery House on our real estate and local blog. 2 hour candle lit tours are offered on select nights in October. Tickets: Adult (ages 13-64): $47 Children: $20 Senior, Military, Fire, EMT: $42
