Winchester mystery house

Constructed by the multi-millionaire 19th century Winchester rifle heiress, Sarah Winchester, the 160-room 1884 Victorian style mansion known as the Winchester Mystery House took over 38 years to build. With its maze of 160 rooms, staircases leading to nowhere, and the many frequent rumors of being haunted, the house is one of the most mysterious and enticing attractions in the region. Today, visitors and guests can explore the beautiful Victorian era gardens and grand mansion and stroll the winding hallways for themselves, with tours and special events held on the grounds throughout the year.
