I have always found the story of Sarah L. Winchester to be monumentally creepy. After her husband died, a medium she hired told her that she was cursed by the spirits of everyone ever killed by a Winchester Rifle. She was told that the only way to escape harm from the spirits was to CONTINUOUSLY build her home. She ended up constructing her home non-stop for over 30 years. The result is a mammoth mansion with countless secret corridors and staircases that lead to absolutely nowhere. Contractors were pretty much given free reign to do whatever they felt like. Apparently the ghost of Sarah Winchester roams around the mansion, forever lost in the maze halls. An ongoing torment after death from the spirits of fallen Winchester victims....
