About this item
Join America's Castles(R) for the fascinating stories behind two of California's most unusual mansions. One of the strangest homes ever constructed, the Winchester Mystery House, in San Jose, California, was built by gun manufacturing heiress Sarah L. Winchester. In the early 1880s, Sarah was told by a spiritual advisor that in order to atone for the deaths of those killed by Winchester rifles, she must build a home for their spirits. For 38 years, she kept an army of carpenters busy 24 hours a day. Go inside and see the jumble of stairs to nowhere, secret passages, and dead ends within this 160-room mansion. Also in this program, discover the massive Spanish-style castle built through the strange alliance between Walter Scott and millionaire Albert Johnson. Experience the stately halls, Moorish bell tower, and grand music room of this curious Death Valley estate.
