Today I'm going to explain you the real history of the Winchester manor.
To start, the Winchester manor was built in the XIX century in California by Sarah Winchester, William Winchester’s widow. Her husband was the heir of the famous company of rifles that killed a lot of people when they colonized the west.
Some months after her husband’s death, her only little daughter built it. When Sarah lost their family, she went into depression also, she became the heiress of the companies. But the wealth of a thousand dollars a day was no consolation for her soul in pain.
She decided to visit a medium to remedy her bad luck. The medium told her that her family was cursed and that she had to move to the west to build a special manor for all the victims that had died with the Winchester weapons.
As the medium said, the house should always remain under construction to appease those souls that tormented her. To build the manor, Sarah did not have any architect, she drew the plans of the house at night and showed them to the foreman. The house must be built along 24 hours a day, without resting. And so it was for 38 years, until Sarah died at 82.
The result is one manor full of stairs and doors that did not lead anywhere, corridors that recoiled on themselves, a total of 160 rooms, and lots of chimneys. The story says that Sarah intended to disorientate the ghosts and lock them in rooms with exactly thirteen nails. Nowadays, you can visit the real Winchester manor, and some of the people that visit the manor have felt chills and strange presences.
