Recent Incidents

I was in the library and I felt a hand on my shoulder. I thought it was my sister, but she was directly in front of me. I turned around and no one was there.

Everyone in my hometown of Bakersfield says that the house is haunted by friendly ghosts. I am the only one that has not seen or felt anything. Yet, I return every year, just in case. I just can’t help myself.

Stairways that go nowhere are places that spirits like to hide. I’ve heard them many times.

I’ve always heard that there were ghosts in the Winchester House, but I never thought that there was any spirits outside. I was alone in the garden for just a minute, when I heard classical music that seemed to come from no where. Suddenly the music stopped. Where did it come from?

During the Behind The Scenes Tour we were taken down into one of the basements. I’ve heard from many that you can sense the spirits of the men who built the house. Now that there is no longer any construction going on, they have nothing to do, but wait for tourists to come by. And when you do, they let you know. You can’t always seem them, but you can always feel them.

I didn’t see any spirits, but I heard them. They sounded like they were suffering.
