History of Winchester Mystery House
Footsteps, Slamming Doors, and OdorsTour guides have reported hearing odd footsteps, and doors being slammed around the house – often coming from places that are not open to the general public. Even though the kitchen has long been inoperable, staff still say they can sometimes smell chicken soup emanating from it. Also, there is a rocking chair that appears to rock backwards and forwards by itself.
Grateful TouristPerhaps the most famous story attached to the house is that of a tourist. Upon finishing their tour, they thanked the staff and said what a great idea it was to have actors in various rooms throughout the house. The tourist was particularly impressed by the actress in the kitchen who played Mrs. Winchester. The problem was that no actors had been hired by the management. When the kitchen was searched, no trace of the person was found.
Ghostly Appearances and SoundsOne of the carpenters who helped to build the house has supposedly been seen, as has the alleged ghost of a small boy. The boy was seen many times by one of the ex-members of staff. Stories abound of a man dressed in 1900s clothing who appears in the basement. An organ can sometimes be heard being played somewhere in the house. Door handles are known to turn, seemingly without anyone touching them, and loud bangs can be heard – bangs which sound very much like gunshots.
