2. Trees of the Sea – suicide forest
In San Jose you can find this victorian mansion that has 160-rooms and is constructed pretty much like a maze, filled with mile-long hallways and secret passages.
The house was build by Sarah Winchester, the widow of William Wirt Winchester, who was the son of the manufacturer of the famous Winchester repeating rifle.
Sarah lived a wealthy but extremely cursed life, losing both her daughter and husband to illness. These tragic turn of events made Mrs. Winchester fell into a deep depression from which she never fully recovered.
It is said, she ultimately sought help from a spiritualist who gave her the idea of building a house to please and accomidate the spirits, and as long as she kept building, her life would not be in danger.
The result is Sarah building this real-life version of the Addams Family household.
