It is shameful that this remarkable woman has been so maligned. What you know about her is the complete lie that a CARNIVAL PROMOTER, who bought her home has created so the HE and his descendants who still own the home today can make a boatload of money. Sarah Winchester was a remarkable, intelligent and innovative woman- she was never allowed to take her rightful place in Bay Area history. Some of her inventions are simply amazing. However- no one would ever know because the CARNY who owns her house wants to make her a freak because to him, freakishness sells! The stairs and doors to nowhere are not a design flaw, but the result of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake- she was elderly and in bad health, and did not have the energy to re-build. There were no seances, there was no medium telling her to build 24-7 so that the ghosts could not find her (she also had no problem with Winchester Guns) and many of the #13 features were ADDED AFTER HER DEATH. There is nothing spooky about Sarah Winchester or her house. When these stories began Sarahís foremanís sons were still alive, they knew her well and they objected to the lies- but people want to believe the bizarre instead of the truth, and they were ignored. Sarah was interested in architecture and wanted to learn about it- she loved her home that she named Llanada Villa. Even in her own time, a woman engaged in architecture was an anomaly and people began to show up and picnic on her property because her house was so large, this is the reason President Roosevelt wanted to visit, and why she turned him down. The house you see today is only partially what she created. Do not believe the lies!

Sarah, we visited your lovely home a couple of hours ago. It's very interesting and the cut glass windows are beautiful. May you now rest in peace and know your home is seen by millons of people.
