Winchester House As one of two homes in California sanctioned by the U.S. Commerce Department as being haunted (the other is the Whaley House, mentioned earlier) the Winchester House stands alone as perhaps the most bizarre haunted home in the U.S.

The mystery house is a colossal construction and home to many myths. A fortune-teller once told Sarah, that ghosts would haunt her throughout her life, so she needed to leave Connecticut and build a huge house, the construction of which would have to continue as long as she was alive. The construction began in San Jose in 1884 and did not stop for 38 until Sarah died. Even those who never believe in ghosts say that they heard or saw something strange during their visit to the house.

The Winchester Mystery House, San Jose, CA, designed by Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune. This 160 room mansion was designed like a maze with mile-long hallways, secret passages, dead ends, doors opening to blank walls and staircases leading to the ceiling, in an effort to confuse the spirits of all the victims of Winchester rifles who had been haunting Sarah. She was instructed by a medium to never stop building the house, or else she would die.
