OriginEdit

The Winchester Mystery House is a well-known mansion in Northern California. It once was the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester. It was continuously under construction for 38 years and is reported to be haunted. It now serves as a tourist attraction. Under Winchester's day-to-day guidance, its "from-the-ground-up" construction proceeded around the clock, without interruption, from 1884 until her death on September 5, 1922, at which time work immediately ceased. The cost for such constant building has been estimated at about US $5.5 million (if paid in 1922; this would be equivalent to over $75 million in 2012).

The Queen Anne Style Victorian mansion is renowned for its size and utter lack of any master building plan. According to popular belief, Winchester thought the house was haunted by the ghosts of the people who fell victim to Winchester rifles, and that only continuous construction would appease them. It is located at 525 South Winchester Blvd. in San Jose, California.

TodayEdit

After Sarah Winchester had died, there were rumors going around of sounds of construction happening, despite that all construction had ceased the moment she passed away. Agents went to check it out and quickly realized that the entire household was an artifact, imbued with Sarah wanting the construction to always continue. An Agent almost got forced by the house to continue on working, but luckily they were able to figure out what the house was trying to do to them. The Agents took the house, put a replacement back on the original site, and stored the house deep within the Warehouse. It is cordoned off with a high chain-linked fence so no one can enter.
