Top 10 Historical Destination – 100 Years of Mystery
100th Anniversary Celebration
May 13, 2022-December 31, 2023
Winchester Mystery House is the beautiful but bizarre mansion built by Sarah Pardee Winchester, heiress of the Winchester Repeating Arms fortune. Haunted by the guilt of those lost to the Winchester Rifle, Sarah 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 in San Jose, CA. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Winchester Mystery House began construction in 1884, and didn’t stop for 38 years until Sarah’s death in 1922. Since tours began in 1923, more than 13 million people from around the world have toured the lonely hallways, dark passages, and ornate rooms of the Winchester Mystery House. It has intrigued visitors, scholars, and media from throughout the United States, and around the globe with its combination of the beautiful and the bizarre, its story of heartbreak, tenacity and invention and its legends of the paranormal.
