Listed is a souvenir book from the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose,Ca. This is 47 pages with pictures and illustrates the bizarre mansion constructed by Sarah Winchester, the heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune.The souvenir book is brand new from the Gift Shop and comes with a modern brochure, which they stopped giving out to guests. Unfortunately the retail price has gone up an exorbitant $4.00 so I have to raise my price accordingly.
In 1884, a wealthy widow named Sarah L. Winchester began a construction project of such magnitude that it was to occupy the lives of carpenters and craftsmen until her death thirty-eight years later. The Victorian mansion, designed and built by the Winchester Rifle heiress, is filled with so many unexplained oddities, that it has come to be known as the Winchester Mystery House.
Sarah Winchester built a home that is an architectural marvel. Unlike most homes of its era, this 160-room Victorian mansion had modern heating and sewer systems, gas lights that operated by pressing a button, three working elevators, and 47 fireplaces. From rambling roofs and exquisite hand inlaid parquet floors to the gold and silver chandeliers and Tiffany art glass windows, you will be impressed by the staggering amount of creativity, energy, and expense poured into each and every detail.
