Winchester Mystery House

Winchester mansion in San Jose, CA. Legends say that Old Mrs. Winchester went batshit crazy after the death of her husband and her baby, and heeded the words of a psychic, who claimed that the spirits of those killed by Winchester Rifles were out to get her, and that she would die "when the hammers stopped falling" in the construction of her house. So she continued construction, any construction, on the mansion until she died. Kinda self-fulfilling prophesy, that. Anyway, crazy rooms, secret passages, doors that open on walls, doors to nowhere, stairs to the ceiling, the chimney that almost made it, strange ocurrances of the number 13, the shape of a spiral and spiderwebs, and the daisy flower, all appear in this crazy house!
