2010 California - April Receveur Photography
August 2, 2010 San Jose, Winchester House garden.  Home to Sarah Winchester who was married to William Wirt Winchester.  He was President of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company from 1880-1881.  (When he died.)  Sarah was instructed to move west (by a medium) and appease the spirtits by building a great house for them.  She left Connecticut and bought an unfinished eight room farm house just 3 miles west of San Jose.  By 1897 Sarah owned just under fifty percent of the company's capital stock.  This provided her with an income of $1000 a day.  This gave her plenty of money to build her mansion.
