The Winchester Mystery House

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by gclink on July 11, 2001

The Winchester Mystery House is found in San Jose off of Interstate 280 and Winchester Blvd. It is on a small section of land that use to be quite large. The house itself is in very poor condition, but you can imagine what it was like when Sarah Winchester lived here. The gardens surrounding the house are very beautiful.

Inside the house you can view bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets that make you wonder if Sarah actually belonged in an asylum after she lost her husband and daughter.

The House is open everyday until about 5 pm and on Friday the 13ths and Halloween, they offer flashlight tours in the evening for extreme fun. There is a lot of walking to do and many stairs to climb so be prepared.
