NEW ROOM WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE

NEW ROOM Winchester Mystery House – A “new” room has been discovered at the Winchester Mystery House, the former Victorian mansion of Sarah Winchester. Heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune, a spiritualist told her to keep adding rooms. So the restless spirits of murdered gunshot victims wouldn’t haunt her. After the 1906 earthquake, she boarded up sections of her house, thinking evil spirits were responsible for her being trapped there. The new room, which is an attic space, had been boarded up since she died in 1922. The preservation team found a pump organ, Victorian couch, dress form, sewing machine and paintings.
