I was taking photos of the garden area while visiting...When I reviewed the pictures I had taken later, one stood out. The photo was of the corner of the garden where the fruit drying shed is. The picture has the evening sun streaming down through the trees. In the lower right of this sunlight some ones head seems to appear...

while walking through the conservatory we witnessed a line of 13 big black crows lined up along the roof, they were sitting on the glass making very creepy noises and clawing the glass.

My family and I visited the Winchester House but sadly, we arrive too late to go on any of the extensive tours of the house's interior. We decided to look through the gardens since that area was available and we took a few pictures. Later, when I was showing some friends pictures of the trip, we noticed two distinct figures in the window of Sarah Winchester's bedroom that overlooks the garden. They were dressed in clothing appropriate for that time period and they seemed to be watching me.

The gardens get spirit visitors. You need to sit very still and wait. If you do, you will not be disappointed. You will see them, the workers from the time that they were building the house.

I tool a lot of pictures in the garden. When I got my film developed there were strange images in parts of the background. In one, my boyfriend was out of focus, but the tree next to him was perfect. In another, his head was missing. In another, it looks like something put their finger right in front of my lens. It was like spirits were playing with us.

The sun was bright, but the figures that I saw did NOT cast shadows. The sun want right through them, like they were made out of mist. I turned my head to tell my dad, but when I turned it back they were gone. When you go to the Winchester house, you have to pay attention every second or you night miss something.

Allen had locked all the doors in the Gift Shop and went back to the Gift Shop storeroom to turn on the alarms. When he returned to the Gift Shop, he found the glass door leading to the courtyard was unlocked. Allen was the only employee on the premises at the time. (1980) In a second incident, Allen walked the entire tour route to shut off the lights in the house. After locking up, Allen walked out to the parking lot and turned around to check and make sure all lights were off in the house. He then proceeded across the street to his car. When he turned around and looked back at the house, all the lights on the third floor were on again. (January of 1981) Allen’s latest experience occurred when he walked into his office one morning and found his desk, paperwork, chair, and floor soaked with water. A pencil holder on his desk was filled with water also. It had rained the night before but not enough to cause the damage that occurred. Also, the ceiling above the desk, the walls, and the paperwork on the walls showed no signs of water damage. From all indications there was no possible way for the water to have gotten where it had.
