Location: San Jose, CA
Notable ghost: Sarah Winchester
Sarah reportedly held nightly seances to gain guidance from spirits and her dead husband for the homeâs design. What resulted was a maze-like residence full of twisting and turning hallways, dead-ends, secret panels, a window built into a floor, staircases leading to nowhere, doors that open to walls, upside-down columns, and rooms built, then intentionally closed off â all to ward off and confuse evil spirits.
