The Winchester Mansion was owned by the Winchester family (firearms makers) and built in the 1800's.  It is located in San Jose California, just South of San Francisco.  I visited this site about 15 years ago and writing a review does it very little justice as you really need to experience it to understand it.      I was given a formal tour of the building and the tour guide was able to provide us in amazing detail, so many facts about the mansion.   …

Went here a year ago - I wouldn't say it felt haunted. Very interesting building though.

About this landmark

Wiki

 The Winchester Mystery House is a well-known California mansion that was under construction continuously for 38 years, and is reported to be haunted. It once was the personal residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester, but is now a tourist attraction. Under Winchester's day-to-day guidance, its "from-the-ground-up" construction proceeded around-the-clock, without interruption, from 1884 until her death on September 5, 1922, at which time work immediately ceased.[2] The cost for such constant building has been estimated at about US $5.5 million (if paid in 1922, this would be equivalent to almost $70 million in 2008 dollars).
The mansion is renowned for its size and utter lack of any master building plan. According to popular belief, Winchester thought the house was haunted by the ghosts of individuals killed by Winchester rifles, and that only continuous construction would appease them. It is located at 525 South Winchester Blvd. in San Jose, California.
