Winchester Mystery House

Winchester House

The name Winchester is famous throughout the United States because of the quality firearms that bear the name. The Winchester Mystery House, the former home of Sarah and William Winchester, was built in response to all of those gun sales. Located only about 10 minutes from Hotel Zico, the Winchester Mystery House was built and worked on at the behest of Sarah Winchester in an attempt to quiet the spirits of those killed by the firearms made by her husband’s company. The house gets its name from some of the peculiar designs that the widow Winchester insisted upon including a window built into the floor, stairs leading to the ceiling, doors that open to walls, and a strange obsession with the number thirteen. You can visit this unique house and take a 65-minute tour of the property. Be sure to stop by The Mercantile after the end of your tour to find that perfect souvenir to commemorate your visit.
