Having the fame of one of the most amazing hunted houses, the Winchester Mystery House is a major tourist attraction in San Jose.

Though I feel it a bit overpriced, the whole mansion is just amazing all in itself. Mrs. Manchester, the eccentric old lady that bought the house has been building it since the day she moved in to the moment she died. I really liked the design of the house, the furnishing, the Victorian-like exterior.

The whole hunted-house feeling just adds to the mansion/s mystery and makes it a more interesting sight to visit.
