The Winchester "Mystery" House is located in San Jose (across the street from Santana Row, an upscale "European" shopping village). The house was built by Sarah Winchester (heiress of Winchester Rifles) and construction continued through her residence there. The house has many oddities (staircases to ceilings, doors opening onto open drops) as changes were constantly made to the existing structure. In the past the tours were "spooky", but now they are a bit more historical in nature. There are some after dark "flashlight tours", but normally the tours are in the daytime.
We will take the Grand Estate tour ($35) which is 2.5 hours in length. Tour group size is limited to 15 persons. We won't have a private group tour and will be buying our tickets upon arrival.
This is a cross-post event with GLBT 40+ Social Group. The tour group limit is 15 and I am updating the spots available as they are filled on both groups.
