Mystery House Edition
;-) Thursday I drove (exactly an hour) to the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. I arrived WAY before it opened, so I drove around a little bit and got some breakfast.
Sadly, you couldn’t take pictures inside, so I’ve only got exterior and through-the-window shots to share.
The house is terribly interesting, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is in the area.
The house was built by Sarah Winchester for 38 years, supposedly as directed by ghosts. Just when you think she’s entirely crazy, you learn about some cutting-edge technology or innovation she had installed in the house.
Here’s a link to the official website.
There are more pictures and plenty of interior shots on flickr. Click here.
Having trouble picking shots I want to use, so here are a couple:
After I left there, I visited the Egyptian Museum in San Jose.
After an interesting drive back to San Fran, I made a stop at the Palace for a couple night shots.
