TOUR: The Winchester Mystery House (with Meal Stop)

Tuesday Aug 14   08:30 AM to 12:30 PM (4 hours)
Visitors to San Jose possessing peculiar sensibilities all are drawn to our local vortex of strangeness – The Winchester Mystery House. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley at the intersection of Victorian technology and Victorian weird, Sarah Winchester's folly is a mecca for explorers of steampunk and devotees of the fantastic. This morning tour is when technology reigns. The tours will focus on the strange innovative spirit that permeates the house and the sources of Winchester's compulsion to create, ornament, and augment her ever-growing structure. With elements of Lovecraftian chaos and Escherian paradox, the Winchester House is a monument to dark imagination.
