Winchester Mystery House - San Jose

In the early 1880s, Sarah Winchester was told by her psychic to move west and get a house. Then, never stop updating and constructing it. The psychic told her as soon as the construct stops she would no longer be safe from the spirits. To appease the spirits and keep herself safe, she bought a house and began around the clock construction.

How could she afford this? Well, between the money she received from her husband’s death and her mother-in-law’s death, she was making about $1,000 a day (Yes, they are those Winchesters).
