The spooky history of the Winchester Mystery House began when a psychic told a very superstitious Sarah Winchester that she is being haunted by the spirits of those who were killed by The Winchester Rifles. The psychic also told Sarah that she needed to build a house that would provide a safe haven for the spirits. Following every instruction given by the psychic, Sarah started building the most confusing house ever.
The now 160-room mansion was under construction from around the clock from 1886 until she passed away. The place is a hotbed for paranormal experts and ghost enthusiasts with many reporting to have seen apparitions, cold spots, footsteps, and disembodied voices. The tour guides working in the place claim that the place is definitely haunted.
