The Most Haunted Home

November 30th, 2020

Sarah Winchester unhappily found herself the sole remaining family member after her daughter and then her husband died. Unsure of what to do, she—like many people of the late 1800s—turned to spiritualists to help.

Help came in the form of a warning: that she needed to move to the West Coast, build a house large enough to accommodate the spirits of the people killed by Winchester rifles, and not stop the work or she’d die too.

The Winchester Mystery House is rich with tales we’ll be sharing as we explore the story of this most haunted house from the ground up.
