Winchester Mystery House

Cupid's fountain at Winchester Mystery House

The Winchester Mystery House (TM) is the beautiful but bizarre mansion built by Sarah Pardee Winchester, heiress of the Winchester Repeating Arms fortune. Construction began in 1884, and didn’t stop for 38 years until her death in 1922. Haunted by the spirits of Winchester Rifle victims, Mrs. Winchester built the dizzying Victorian-style structure with many odd and mysterious features. Doors that open to walls, stairways that lead to the ceiling, and many more oddities in the massive 160-room mansion. Open to the public since 1923, the Winchester Mystery House (TM) offers daily guided tours of the estate.
