LThe Winchester house is one of those stories that make the hair stand on end, so if you want to meet her, know that we will not be responsible for the electricity bill when you have to sleep with it on ... Do you dare? Well here we go!
After the death of her daughter, and shortly thereafter, also that of her husband, gun mogul William Wirt Winchester, Sarah Winchester was plunged into a deep depression that culminated in the visit to a famous seer of the time, Adam Coons. He confessed, nothing more and nothing less, that his family was cursed because of all the killings that those weapons had caused, and that To keep the spirits calm, I had to build a house for them. But ... if the works ever stopped, Sarah would die. So she had no choice but to devote all her efforts (since she directed the project herself) and income to the lifting of that kind of sinister temple, a task she carried out for 38 years, until her death in 1922.
The result? An authentic labyrinth of 160 rooms with doors that open to emptiness, stairs that reach nowhere, and many more deceptive traps so that ghosts could not catch it. In fact, it is said that he never slept more than two nights in a row in the same room ...
But you will be wondering where he got such a fortune to pay for a 38-year construction. The answer is simple: when her husband died, Sarah inherited several million dollars and a lot of actions from the arms company that would increase with the death of her mother-in-law. Come on, I had the salary more than insured.
And now yes, let's go for a walk in the creepy mansion! Which, by the way, today is a museum that you can visit ...Advertising - Keep reading below A facade full of enigmas
