The Winchester Mystery House is located in San José: built in 1884 by Sarah Winchester, widow of the famous gun magnate William Wirt Winchester. When the husband died from tuberculosis, Sarah received a significant inheritance. A spiritualist told her to build a house in San José for her and the victim of Winchester guns. The works proceeded without interruption until her Death in 1922.
