WINCHESTER
MYSTERY HOUSE
THE WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE WAS THE
HOME OF SARAH WINCHESTER, HEIRESS TO
THE WINCHESTER RIFLE FORTUNE, FROM 1884 UNTIL
HER DEATH IN 1922.
MRS. WINCHESTER WAS CONVINCED BY AN
OCCULTIST THAT THE LIVES OF HER HUSBAND
AND DAUGHTER HAD BEEN TAKEN BY THE SPIRITS
OF THOSE KILLED BY "THE GUN THAT WON THE
WEST" AND THAT SHE TOO WOULD SHARE THEIR
FATE UNLESS SHE WOULD BEGIN BUILDING A
MANSION FOR THE SPIRITS ON WHICH WORK
WOULD NEVER STOP OR BE COMPLETED. SHE
WAS PROMISED LIFE FOR AS LONG AS SHE
KEPT BUILDING.
SO WITH $1,000 A DAY ROYALTIES FROM THE
WINCHESTER RIFLE FORTUNE, THE SOUNDS OF
THE CARPENTERS' TOOLS COULD BE HEARD 24
HOURS A DAY FOR ALMOST 38 YEARS AS THE
DIMINUTIVE LADY BUILT TO LIVE. AND HERE
IS WHAT WAS CREATED....
DEDICATED FRIDAY THE 13TH, MAY 1983, BY
