Pictures taken on August 20, 2005 at the Winchester Mystery House (40 pictures)

On August 20, 2005 I flew into San Jose as part of a two week business trip, and I had time to tour the Winchester Mystery House which was built by Sarah Winchester, heiress of the Winchester Rifle company, starting in 1884, and built continously until her death 38 years later. It is said, she feared the souls of people killed by the Winchester rifles would haunt her if she ever stopped building.
