The Strange & Wonderful Winchester Mystery House

One of the most bizarre private homes in the country, the Winchester Mystery House is a Silicon Valley icon. Featuring 160 ornate rooms, stunning Tiffany art glass windows, manicured gardens, and plenty of unexplained oddities, this unusual Victorian-era residence was the home and brainchild of Sarah L. Winchester, heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune. Explore the historic mansion on your guided tour to see unusual features like spider web windows, dead-end doorways and stairways to nowhere, the Hall of Fires, and the spooky Séance Room. The Winchester Mystery House is a must-see California attraction.
