Continuously under construction for 38 years, the Winchester House in San Jose boosts 160 rooms because Sarah Winchester, the heiress to the Winchester Co., was told to keep building in order to keep the spirits at bay who were killed by Winchester rifles.
The house has rooms without doors, stairs leading nowhere and many other features to confuse the spirits. In the picture you can see the ‘door to nowhere’ on the second floor.
A must see if you’re ever in the area. Visit the official website for more information.
I know that I’ve already re-blogged Winchester Mystery House stuff, but seriously, once you get past the “I’ve already visited it ten times” thing, it is actually pretty cool.
