I mean that's what we'll never figure that out. Obviously and i personally really enjoy the idea that she also built herself a place to spend the rest of her life in like you know after life in right You know if you believe in that like regardless if you believe in ghosts or not. I think that the the romantic idea of building yourself like this thing. That you you detailed and you highlighted and you decorated building yourself this thing that you know if you believe in haunting ghosts that you that you can spend the rest of eternity and this is a pretty pretty cool concept like.

"It's a water tank. It caught fire Damage damage the tank houses. Well so and eventually they actually ended up moving. This tank house like physically moving it further from the property just because they didn't want any further issues to happen Which i thought was pretty pretty wild actually and now coming into like the current timeframe. The winchester mystery house is actually incorporated. The mission is to kind of keep the home in the gardens open for future generations. And they've done so many cool things so they have a restoration of the victorian gardens in one thousand nine hundred seventy. They're granted a historic or a granted state historic landmark status in nineteen seventy four It's actually on the national register of historic places. Flashlight tours in the nineteen eighties. This is actually what. I got to attend which was pretty cool. Flashlight tour. The old well houses moved one hundred feet. Remember said into a spacious new courtyard now. Then this is actually where it gets kind of kind of cool There are more and more towards that kinda get linked to this and eventually in a twenty eight or twenty eighteen. Yes winchester was actually filmed. It's a movie with helen. Mirren plane sarah winchester. It's actually a horror movie kind of loosely based but based on the story sarah winchester and that movie was pretty decent. And i definitely watched really. Wow because i looked it up in it had horrific reviews. Okay as a person who's a fan of the story. I think. I like that is true that liked it otherwise. Yeah yeah that's valid because that carries a lot of weight. When you're into the story. I wanted to watch it. I watch the trailer and it looked. It looked pretty good. Do you think that she was just immensely. Depressed had a lot of money and was keeping her mind busy by building this house or do you think it was linked to the spirits in any way so. I think that that she believes wholeheartedly. That it was because of the spirits I think that There was a huge a huge part of her. That believed one hundred percent that she had to do this. Based on the based on what that psychic medium had told her so. I think that she was doing it for the reasons that she said she was doing it. I think that. I think that we're the money comes into play as she had the resources to do it but also she had the money that no one would tell her she was crazy. If you get my right yeah like we talked about this in a previous episode Actually the georgia guide jones episode. We talked about like the guy making the georgia guide stones. Like at what point he going to say no. You're a crazy person. I'm not building those. Or is he just gonna take the money and build them anyway because it's a lot of money and like to me. I think that bears bears. Its weight here too right. It's like she's willing to pay these carpenters for essentially round..

"I think that it's really really awesome. That these little rumors that people had for years while she was living at this house have perpetuated themselves and become the thing that everyone still talks about. That is pretty crazy. Because i i'm telling you it's almost in every single thing that i read about this so that's interesting that it's not true and it's interesting that it lasted so long and it was just a rumor and it in every rumor has like a little s- snippet of truth in it right. Oh for sure. I mean she was definitely reclusive right. Definitely yeah crazy and all of this was definitely happening but not to the same extent that i think a lot of the rumors made it sound super interesting out of this house which started as a two story town era farmhouse and quickly grew but grew over thirty eight years. This is the this is the numbers as they stand now so it is twenty four thousand square feet which is unbelievable. That is huge from two story. Farmhouse to twenty four thousand square feet. There are ten thousand windows. A lot of those windows are part of walls that are built into other rooms. So they're not even windows to the outside which is crazy. There are two thousand doors and a couple of these doors at. I'm gonna mention two of them. Very specifically one of them is the famous door to nowhere that. If you ever go and visit this house you can actually see in the front of the house kind of facing the left hand side of the property it. It's on the it's kind of on the second or third floor. It's kind of kind of weird like the height of it. But if you were to go through the store from the inside you would fall to concrete down below. It would not be comfortable. There are one hundred sixty. Oh i'm sorry. The second door that was going to mention. Is that the door. The it's labeled the door to know where to right right under it. We can get it. Yeah oh for sure. It's actually have a picture of it. That i took i'ma put all my goodness goodness. Don't even have to use stock imagery for this one folks so the other door that i wanted to mention comes out of another room and it goes on to receive those like Like patio setups. Where there there's a slatted roof. It's not like a solid roof. It's just like wood planks..

"I don't think there's very many like the you've got this movie and you know that this movie is apparently like there's some some theories that this is a follow along movie from django That django occurred earlier in this fictional. Timeline and hatefully is occurring later in the fictional timeline. Oh interesting. I didn't know that. So the theory is that samuel jackson's character in hateful eight is a descendant of samuel jackson's character in django saying so like there. There's like a continuation here and Hatefully to set after the whereas django is set during slavery during it right yesterday. So it's i thought that was pretty interesting to kind of think about and They're apparently there are characters and there's like theories around this their characters in some of the movies that are said to also be like the ancestors of characters and like pulp fiction and reservoir. I like that. I mean i like that kind of stuff and tarantino would do that for sure. So he's a film buff gephardt. So yeah you definitely. Would i would. I would literally do anything for him to make a samurai movie. I think it would be absolutely like combining hateful. Eight django style is not really the same time but you know what i mean older time with the kill bill style. Violence on man would be so good i was gonna say there's that whole scene in kill bill. That wasn't enough apparently. Yeah no it wasn't it wasn't because it's not really a samurai movie. You know what i mean. You're right it's not not seven sam riots. Not you know the older style. Samurai movies and i think he would do a fantastic job but but the enemy and kill. Bill is oh so so so so so all right so i think alex is on his way back I can hear him. he's i think he's just put the kids to bed. My bug in his house is working out really well so i think yeah okay cool. Hey alex you don hey by and we were so bored without humor. Oh yeah. I'm sure we had nothing to talk about. So that chad. I don't get along. Alex just wanted to tell you that correct. That's very very true. Yeah guys are weird. And i have no idea what you're talking about okay.

"So sarah lockwood party values at per day party party party party party already party. So she marries william winchester over the family business right in eighteen sixty two. Sarah and william had one child anne winchester who was born in eighteen sixty six zero married into a prominent family. Tragedy would soon strike her not once but twice in a short period of time so her infant daughter passed away from an. I could not get the saying this right even watch videos. Do you guys know how to say this. Marasmus marasmus marasmus. Yeah yeah so there were like i watched a couple videos on it and there were like two different ways to say it. Sounds like whatever so anyway. it's marasmus. It's a severe form of malnutrition which i would imagine was pretty big back down right definitely as well as what her. What happened next ashley predominant yeah and also i just wanted to throw in the fact that it wasn't because they didn't take care of her because it was a congenital disorder that she was born with so yeah. They actually fed her correctly and took care of her but it was like they couldn't really fight it at that time. There were edison to take care of her yet right and then her died of tuberculosis. Which was also like ryan said pretty big back then so. Correct me if i'm wrong. This was only about six months after oliver. Winchester died correct. Yup yup. i think you're on the head six months so so just to sum that up for anybody who's wondering on those timeframes oliver winchester dies passing this this thing on his onto william william dies six months later and now sarah suddenly in this position. That's right wild like imagine all of that happening all at once like that. Yeah because it's made. It's a major high. Because he takes over the company right william succeeds in the company and then the daughter dies and then he died six months later. So it's like a. They went really high. And then they're gonna like down in the dumps and now she's all alone and i think that plays into a lot of what we're gonna talk about here. My opinion so following the inheritance the widow winchester visited a boston medium. The boston medium allegedly channelling. Her late husband informed her that she must leave for the west where she must continually build a house for herself in the spirits of those killed by the winchester rifles. Now and she's doing this on an inheritance of twenty point one million dollars which is equivalent to five hundred and fifty million today like that is right. That is a mind blowing amount of money. Right definitely because i mean back then. It's not easy to move across the country right. No not at all right. I mean if it weren't for this medium saying that this is where she had to go which i mean. I think that you know. We'll get into this probably later but You know. I i think that this medium kinda played on on her grief at the time and i think that you know whether this medium was real or not like that's left up in the air what we'll just kind of leave it to you. Form your opinion about that but obviously she's overwhelmed with grief everything that you could ever possibly have happened to you as a person just happened to you a giant inheritance. Your only child died in your husband died. And you're left with this controlling stake in a company.

"Amongst us. On asked about a strange Mrs Winchester would never confirm if she was indeed building a haunted house. All the same. She was contacting good spirits to see how to best appease the ones that she needed to build rooms for in her house. Perhaps, this is why so many illogical choices were made when it came to the construction of the place. WHO KNOWS One thing I will say in Sarah's defense while she. Appears to be a bit cuckoo for cocoa POPs. She deserves more credit than what she gets from history. She gets more credit. because. She's a brilliant mind and we overlook those quite often an even though she was. A bit rough around the edges trying to appease spirits she was. Hearing how tactful ways to make their lives hell at the same time I mean I. Don't blame her one bit. I would do the same thing if I'm going through all of this crazy construction so I can make a bunch of ghosts. Happy I'm surely quick to get something out the deal. Now. Thirteen different bathrooms and the home only one was functional. This was an effort to confuse any spirits who thought it might be fun to Hong a spigot. She would also do things like sleep in different rooms of the house every night and used secret passageways to get from one room to another. All of this, just to keep the spirits from following her. Sorry guys. But this is where I would pull out the old rock salt draw myself align. Every threshold and keep them out that way. But who am I to? Its. Sarah Winchester passed away of heart complications. Many years later in September of thousand, nine, hundred, twenty two and left all of her belongings to her niece Marian who had been secretary as over recent years. Her will never made a single mention of the house would further added the mystery of all. The house was cleared out in about six weeks and whatever Mary in keep she would sell at auction. About five months later after that, the house was sold for a mere one, hundred, thirty, five, thousand dollars and reopened for towards for the very first time to the public. Talk about a haunting legacy. And My Ryan. Since the reopening of the House back in the twenties employees who now work. There clean to have had run INS with the residents of tragic filled past time magazine actually went onto named the houses one of the most haunted houses in the world. And to this day, draws paranormal investigators, psychics and mediums from all across the gloom fame psychic Sylvia. Browne, even once paid the mystery home of visit. It seems like. Everyday something is. Occurring within the walls of the house things are just right unexplainable and for lack of a better word ghostly. I'm talking about disembodied voices. Strange shadows, odd Colt spots, flickering lights, and slamming doors. Both tour guys and visitors alike over the years have also reported feeling heavy presences while on tours and sometimes even seeing mysterious mysterious figures moving to the halls. Is believed that some Sarah Winchester's loyal workman and servants from the household may still very well be looking out for the place even in death. One such mysterious figured that is often seen as the apparition of a man with hair as black as the night. It said that he was a former handyman. Mainly because he's usually seen repairing fireplace and the ballroom or even pushing a wheelbarrow down a long in extremely dark hallway. Each time he has seen he simply disappears. Without so much as a trace. Once while conducting a tour one of the. Guy For the house took her guest daisy bedroom. This particular bedroom is where Sarah Winchester actually hit during the earthquake in nineteen oh six. The tour guide was about to begin her usual bid about the Becker when all of a sudden there came a heavy. From just outside the bedroom door. Poor Sam thought whenever guests had fallen. So she turned and called out to them then to attend attempted to invite them into the room. When no-one entered she was quite confused. There appeared to be no-one there or is adjusted to the darkness of the Hallway, and then she noticed something that didn't quite make sense to her. A small form that resembled person shrouded by darkness materialized and floated gently around the corner. Sam now slightly terrified quickly whipped around the corner after the string spector but again found no one there. Once more. She heard a heavy. Sigh. Perhaps Sarah Winchester is checking in on things and signed with her discontent. Several years back, there was a craftsman who is assigned to work on a hefty restoration project those taking place in the mansion he decided to get an early start one morning and he found himself in the hall of fires. The name simply comes from the fact that this area contains several fireplaces. House was empty and the stillness of it could be filled. The quiet. Filled his ears as he worked festivities at the top of the. Ladder. Suddenly someone came up from behind and tapped him on the shoulders. Caught off guard, he turned to see what I WANNA. Do you think found anyone of course not. No one was there. Getting back to his work the craftsman told himself that he was just imagining things and all was well. A few minutes past and then he felt someone pushing up against his back. A chill shot straight down his spine he flew down the ladder ran across the house to look for another project to work on. It was more than obvious that someone or something did not want him in the hall of fires. These are but a few of the many goes lean counters that I've come out of the winchester mystery house. There are plenty more where that came from as well. If. You visited the house, send us an email. Please tell us about your experience. Tell us if you've seen anything there.

I absolutely have to see this place before. I. Part ways with this lovely life online. Winchester Mystery House is just one of those places that you have to see. Needless to say, it's going on the bucket list. Author Bram Stoker throat there are mysteries which men can only guess at which age by age they may only solve and park. Some mysteries such as this. Drew in the likes of Harry. Houdini. In Nineteen, twenty four, he gave in to the lower and visited imagine that was a rambling puzzle of Carnival funhouse type quirks that could perplex even the smartest mortals. The Mansion was located at five twenty five South Winchester Boulevard right in the heart of present day. California's Silicon Valley. Typically unknown magician by Trade Houdini was dedicated at this point in his life to debunking what he considered to be a play of fake mediums. The mass of State even though it had partially been demolished by the Great San Francisco or nineteen o six found, it's haunting reputations very much intact fun fact as a result of the earthquake come the house went from seven to four stories high. Not even a master magician such as Houdini could shake the feeling that something inside the walls up that place was just playing. houdini would later dub the building winchester mystery? House. After the late Sarah Winchester, of course, they secretive millionaire clues who built the house and lived in it until her death in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, two. There have been over twelve million visitors to the house. Sarah Winchester passed away nowadays a history museum and paranormal attraction the winchester mystery. House has gone on to inspire a slew of novels even a new horror movie winchester, which stars Helen Mirren as the main character, the reclusive heir to a massive fortune. As I've seen the film I can say. One it's. Or? And to the film gives you a good look at the house. And it definitely makes you want to learn more about it. When asked if she thought the house was indeed haunted actress Helen Mirren stated that she was a skeptic. She did go on to say though if it is haunted I feel it is haunted by something very benign. I feel sort of a grades How shall I put I? Feel a sweetness in the house. Not a horror. There's a sweetness in it. If it is haunted by something, it's something sweet. You. The Story of Sarah Winchester. is as follows. Born, in eighteen forty Shubert. Grew up in a world of privilege. She attended the best schools and Spook four different languages she married well and had herself a little girl in her late twenties. Unfortunately. Tragedy Befell Sarah as she lost her daughter Anne to Marasmus at six weeks old. She was absolutely devastated much like any mother would in that situation. Then almost a decade. Later she lost her husband William to Berkeley close in eighteen eighty one. C Loss. The both of them to disease her husband and her child, and she was never really quite the same after that. Sarah Winchester went onto inherent more than twenty million dollars roughly five, hundred, million dollars in today's currency. As if that was an she received fifty percent ownership of the winchester repeating arms company from her husband that right there guys give her an income of roughly one thousand dollars per day. Anybody want to figure out what that is today go ahead. I encourage you do the math. It's twenty thick twenty, six, thousand dollars a day. That's what it equals out to roughly. Incredible. That's all I can say. I know some people who don't even make that in entire year. Well well, this kind of wealth hunter hands. Mrs. Winchester. Could do just about anything she wanted. Now she was living in a time where a lot of people were turning to spiritualism as a way of dealing with grief. Typically more European in nature this took off in the United States just after the civil war. Grieving wives and mothers were looking for ways to contact today, contact the dead to see if they weren't peace. Make Sense. There was nothing wrong with it. Most people considered it to be a normal thing. Sarah Winchester actually turned to a Boston medium that told her during a seance that she should leave her home in New Haven Connecticut and Travel West to California. There she must find a home to live in in never stopped building on. She must accommodate all those who had died as the result of winchester. Rifles. The words were allegedly spoken through the medium by Sarah's William, who said his wife needed to do this or live the rest of her life? By those who can't move on? Before we know at Winchester had pack your bags and a trip to California was underway. Sources for the most part thing that due to a rough battle with depression a much needed change of scenery wasn't order. There are those who were close to Ruben seeing a different tune. However, they say that Sarah was under the distinct impression that she was being plagued by spirits of those died because of winchester rifles, the only way to appease them was to move and build a house big enough with them all. The Jay doper desires came into not too long after an e bedroom unfinished farmhouse in these Santa Clara Valley out in California she bought it right away in the building commenced. The best carpenters were sought out and worked on the House twenty four hours a day until it became a monstrous seven storey mansion. And architect was never hired strangely enough and the. Construction was always done rather awkwardly hazardously I guess you could say. The the home contained numerous oddities because of the such as doors and stairs that lead to nowhere windows overlooking other rooms. Many. Accounts attribute these oddities to Winchester's belief in Gos-. By the turn, the century Mrs Winchester had spared no expense for her ghostly mansion and had ruled out twenty four thousand square feet, two thousand doors, one hundred, sixty rooms, thirteen bathrooms, seventeen chimneys, forty-seven fireplaces, fifty two skylights, ten thousand windows, six kitchens, two basements, three elevators, and let's not forget the gorgeous faux grain stained funhouse interior. Contractors who worked on the House during its Heyday reported that Sarah was holding seances on a daily basis local mediums in the area her objective you might wonder to get in touch with the good spirits out there.

Trees allegedly meant to represent the twin pillars in front of Solomon's Temple much of the freemason symbolism and mythology dates back to the construction of this ancient Biblical temple and honors the architects. Who built it continuing into the grand ballroom? You'll find. It's the only room in the entire home built without nails. This odd and delivered feature is another clear nod to Solomon's Temple but there's also a floor in the grand ballroom which is decorated with light and dark squares like the checkered flooring found in a Masonic Lodge Ben. You can walk up the switch back staircase a winding set of gently sloping stairs that lead to the second floor. This staircase has a total of seven turns. Which could be an allusion to Jacob's ladder? Which has seven rungs each one resembling a step closer to a higher power. This also happens to be a popular reference in Masonic Culture whose objective is total enlightenment. It was also rumored that Sarah required her guests to enter from the North West corner of the House and Masonic initiates were required to enter the lodge from the exact same direction. The home even pays homage to legendary artists who may have been freemasons themselves like Dutch. Graphic artist emcee Esher who also found beauty in stairs that lead to nowhere. He often demonstrated them in his work. Like the famed print relativity a commentary on a world where the rules of gravity. No longer apply in one. That looks a bit like a picture of the winchester mansion with dozens of stairs to nowhere in windows that don't belong although issues career didn't start blossoming until the very end of Sarah Winchester's life. It's possible that she caught wind of the young artist and his vision through her connections with the freemasons. While there's no proof he influenced her work. It's possible that if he visited the winchester mansion she influenced his then. There's the iconic playwright William Shakespeare and English philosopher Francis Bacon in one set of stained glass windows a winding banner reads wide and clasp the tables of their thought winding banners were commonly used by. Bacon while the words are undoubtedly Shakespeare and it's not the only example another reads these same thoughts people. This little world disorienting choice of words was perhaps meant to drive away. People whose minds couldn't conceive of these ideas. Sarah knew that many would shrug and move on. Which is why. The house was not designed with ordinary visitors in mind. The Winchester Mystery House. Much like Francis. Bacon work is said to be built in code beacons works often considered complex puzzles for later generations to crack and solve. Perhaps Sarah had the same intention for her home. It's also possible that Sarah took an interest in Francis Bacon because of their shared perspectives. On the afterlife many believed that Bacon was also a freemason which would mean they both understood the masonic philosophy that the path to hire enlightenment was through a greater understanding of the arts science and math. Some believe that Sarah was even trying to achieve the concept of higher dimensional geometry by making things appear in four d throughout her home essentially. She was trying to build her own real life. Version of M C escher staircase. Many scholars toward the end of the nineteenth century. Were playing with the concept of a fourth dimension in space and believed with the right combination of mathematics. This geometry could actually be achieved. It wasn't just art. It was science. And from the fourth dimension the bizarre features of the house would work the doors to nowhere would lead to rooms. The staircases two ceilings would take one to a hallway. And so on. So when we start to consider the fact that Sarah's house might not have been a response to ghosts or to mental illness but instead to a deeper philosophy on life the home actually begins to make sense the symbolism the bizarre references to art its labyrinthine structure. Ovitz seems to add up and perhaps Sarah Winchester's connection to the freemasons and her attempts to reach a higher dimension actually gave her hope maybe it brought her solace the idea that she would one day be reunited with the loved. One she lost Walter.

"Whispered as while. Will the Winchester mystery house makes good amount of money based on ghost stories. That's purely what they that's their business their their businesses. Go stories. It is not surprising that the head of marketing would have some ghoulish story to tell the other portion of the money that they receive is because of people thinking that Sarah was crazy. And I'm not sure how much I believe that. She was crazy. I think she was more calculated in misinformed. But I do not think that she was crazy. I I don't believe that. There was actually somebody, you know, a ghost poking him, or whatever I I think that this house the way that situated it. Well again into that later. I don't believe that. This is true. I think this is nonsense. And I think that anytime you put the term marketing in something I believe that it's goal. Now is to make money. All right. Well. Few more aright many have also felt their hair being brushed while they walking alone one guide even trip down a stair and felt pressure on her arm and a voice audibly asked. Are you? Okay. No one else was around. But the guide says she felt a continued presence as she collected herself a walked away. Those very polite of the ghost if there was a ghost. These are very nice coast. Nice ones. Yes. I think that people go into this wanting to believe that there is something as I've said in previous episodes. If you go into something wanting a certain result, you're more likely to achieve that result. Almost like you don't wanna feel ripped off like the P T. Barnum thing, you know, where it's like, hey, you just got ripped off. But don't tell the world because they need to get ripped off too. So you allow yourself to be highly suggestive at this time. Also environmental psychologists have theorized that the layout of the house itself contributes to the feeling of the house being haunted today. Well, I think that this isn't gonna say earlier that I'd lay out of the house was built that way to confuse the spirits. Keep them trapped in the house. I'm going to argue that okay? Yeah. And I will do that at the end of the debate. Okay. Are as I've just one more. Okay. Okay. So I mentioned that there's mediums have gone to the house and psychic. So I just thought I'd mention just one story. I'm picking some specific stories, but please no these are just a a brief selection of stories. There are many more so Kloof clairvoyant spiritual medium, James van Prague of visited the house and conducted a sands in the grand ballroom declared he declared that Sarah is happy that people are still enjoying her home. But he also picked up on her sadness in particular that the sadness associated with the loss of her infant daughter, which obviously would make sense. Yeah. It was really it was really sad that her daughter died forty days when she was forty days old. It was it was really sad. And I know that Sarah probably probably felt this throughout her whole life. I do not believe she had any other children naturally. I'm positive did not have any other children. So that has to really. Really be something emotional for somebody. But I do believe that there would be very happy to know that her house was being visited even today. She designed this house to be a puzzle that would inspire people to become enlightened. Sara viewed her visitors to be potential initiates of the freemasonry. I know you. We're gonna have discussion. I know you think that that's kind of funny. But yeah, in fact, if we look at her infant daughters obituary, we see evidence of this. She was really into numerology. Let me tell you that her name on the obituary was Winchester, comma, and in all caps any party any party is in numerology is better than any Winchester for her. So let me are you done with all the rest of the end up with the stories. Yeah. I'm not that what the debate. But I'm no what the story. Okay. Yes. Yes. So I may be a skeptic today. But I wasn't always skeptic. I was in search of some deeper meaning for life when I was younger after my father passed away much like Sarah was I got into a lot of different things. And I'm not ashamed of these things. They've made me the person that I am today. I enjoyed then and still do today studying different religions. I am really into watching documentaries about stuff reading books about different religions. I I'm I'm almost to the point where it's an obsession. I get joy out of doing this. And I did a lot of studies have different in somewhat non-conventional forms of Christianity. Then I studied some much more older pagan religions, I even dabbled in the occult. I actually ran an online community in website that searched for answers in these areas. It was called halls of Avalon. In fact, I bought the domain name back hauls of Avalon dot com. And if you type that into the you are L, it'll take you to go still good. I mean, we don't have to be like worried about. Nailing the Colton stuff. No, okay. Just checking what I see from the research that I've done on Sarah. And the Winchester house is that she too went down the same path that I did only she never stopped going down these paths. Whereas they led me to question Moore and become a skeptic. Sarah was a firm believer. If not a member of the freemasons and was since an early age the people that she grew up with especially the bacon family in not Kevin bacon Francis. Yeah. We're talking much older are very familiar names to those that have studied these things she believes strongly numerology, which is apparent in the Winchester house. She designed the house to
