Mysterious Mansion

January 04, 2018

The name Winchester has been part of the American lexicon for over 150 years. When her husband William Winchester died, the widowed Sarah Winchester began an architectural project that lasted until her death in an effort to appease the spirits of those killed by the weapons made by the family company. Those efforts are maintained in her mansion which is more commonly known as the Winchester Mystery House. Located about 10 minutes from the Alura Inn, the Winchester Mystery House offers tours and access to 110 of the 160 rooms in the curiously designed home. Of course, a place has to earn a name like mystery house, and this one does with features like a window built into the stairs, stairs that lead to the ceiling, doors that open to blank walls, and even rumors of paranormal activity. Mansion Tour tickets also include access to the Victorian Gardens, Historic Firearms Museum, and Specialty Gifts and Antique Products Museum.
