The Winchester Mystery House, located in San Jose, California, is an enigmatic mansion with a history steeped in mystery and intrigue. Constructed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, widow of William Wirt Winchester, heir to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. What makes this house truly unique is its architectural oddities and the story behind its construction.

Sarah Winchester, driven by superstition and grief over losing her husband and child, believed that the spirits of those killed by Winchester rifles were haunting her. To appease them, she engaged in continuous and eccentric construction on the house. The result is a sprawling mansion with staircases that lead to nowhere, doors that open into walls, and rooms within rooms.
