12. Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA
Oh, the Winchester Mystery House –– a spooky and well-known staple of the Silicon Valley. There's no end to the strange tales surrounding this funhouse mansion. 

When former owner Sarah Winchester married into the Winchester Rifle family, she had no idea of the tragedy that would befall her. After the death of her infant daughter –– and husband 15 years later –– Sarah was told by a medium that the spirits of those who had been killed by the family's rifles had caused the deaths of her husband and child. Apparently, she would be next unless she gave them an offering –– like a great house. Thus, the creepiest construction project ever began, soon to be known as the Winchester Mystery House.

The house is now open to the public where visitors can embark on a guided tour of the house to see its endless macabre features, including stairways that lead directly into the ceiling, windows that open into secret passages, and more.
