On our way to San Francisco, we stopped in San Jose at the Winchester Mystery House. If you've not heard of it (and before a few months ago, I hadn't), it's the home of Anna Winchester who was the heir to the Winchester rifle. She had quite a bit of money and was very superstitious, so she bought an 8 room farmhouse and believed she had to constantly be updating the house or bad spirits would find her. So for 38 years around the clock, she was constantly renovating the property. At the time of her death it was 160 rooms, many of which were in a state of renovation.
