This house & the story behind it are pretty cool. Essentially, this chick Sarah married William Winchester, of the Winchester family that made and sold rifles. After her husband died, she moved to CA and built this mansion with all of the money she had from marrying rich, thanks to the success of the rifle company.
She apparently had spirits that told her to keep building onto this mansion in a strange way. Construction went on for 30+ years, around the clock, to create this weird house. She wouldn't tear down walls to create new rooms, she would have a new room just built right next to the old one. Therefore, there are doors and staircases in the oddest places such as a set of stairs that leads to the ceiling and doors that open into other doors.

Beautiful glass windows in her "storage" room made by Tiffany's!
One of a kind glass window, that is not facing the sun so it never gets lit up!
No basement photos because we were a small group and the tour guide would've seen me. haha. After the house, we stopped on Santana Row for a snack. Santana Row is a little area with lots of shops and restaurants - tons of people were sitting outside because it was SO nice out!
We came back to our place for dinner and Erik's Mom made us Chicken, rice & beans. So good!
