Very Mysterious.....

Winchester Mystery House....
Poor Mrs. Winchester was convinced that if her house wasn't in a constant state of construction she would be haunted by the ghosts of all those killed by Winchester Rifles. It made for a sad, tragic and lonely life for her, but a great afternoon for us! The enormity of this "house" is hard to comprehend and you could easily get lost in stairways to nowhere and room after room of luxury.
We took the regular tour (they also have a behind the scenes for 10 and up) that lasted about an hour to an hour and a half and it was just enough for Ellianah.


When the tour ends, you are free to explore the grounds...which is where Randy found these cool giant stones. They look like they were brought in from some ancient ruin...








The house and the grounds were beautiful...if only Mrs. Winchester could have truly enjoyed them. I'm sure she could have found a better use for her money to right the wrongs then building a giant house even she didn't enjoy. She spent most of her time in only a small fraction of this mansion...












Thanks for a fun afternoon!
