This haunted house is known the world over as the place where 160 various rooms that go nowhere and doors in the ceiling. All for the main cause of her pet ghosts - as I would refer to them as. Apparently told Sarah Winchester (widow of William Wirt Winchester) to do have them made. I am posting a link to the main website so that you can explore some of the best photos. Enjoy! Very Happy

Thank you for sharing this information and that site. I love Gothic old houses and the eccentric personalities who created them.

It is almost as bit as Biltmore House in North Carolina:

I don't know if it is haunted, but it has enough rooms (400) to hide some ghosts!


I will look around for some famous haunted houses in the Chicago area and post them here.

I was looking for some old mansions which had hidden rooms and used for murder when I came across this mansion in Ohio:

This does look interesting if it is close to where you are at.

Franklin Castle is very very creepy. I have a few mobile photos of it here I went there and to another castle in or around Cleveland in Late September with a girlfriend I work with. It was very creepy. But also there was a calm about it.

It is a beautiful house with the stone masonry and the Victorian style. I would put it on my list of places to go next time I visit family in Ohio.

Thank you for sharing that photo, Tethys.

You are welcome. It is placed in such a regular neighborhood too. Just be careful which way you go - it is technically in Ohio City, OH outside of Cleveland and one way is well kind of not the best part of town and you another way it is very ritzy and pretty.

I took a very interesting photo of it from the side but I am not sure if you can see the odd looking thing in the photo I saw. I'll post it here anyhow.



if you look toward the center you can see a peach colored siloette. It looks like the side view of a girls face. I did not see any sunlight reflections really on that side of the house and all of the greenery came out on the photo as being white or yellow. Then there is this peach looking thing. I thought it was odd compared to my friends photos and it did not show up again in the second photo I took. Just a wee bit odd.
