Front Kitchen

We were wrapping up our flashlight tour, having had a lovely visit, and we came to the final kitchen, walking through to the final room. My friend Charles says "There are so many people who walk through here, there's no spirits left." at that moment, one of the windows on our left hand side (right across from the "Watch Your Step" sign) falls open.

I went to the Mystery House with my best friend; we thought it would be a normal tour, hence the word TOUR in the name. We went, expecting a great time, but in the Front Kitchen, my friend felt a hand on her shoulder, I didn't believe until I felt the hand too. We were so scared. WE went again for Halloween, and the same thing happened. I'm never going there again!

So, I was with my friends and we were all excited that we were at the house at night. It was about 11:58, we were in the front kitchen, and we were all waiting for something creepy to happen. It turned 12. We were all kinda disappointed, but then I heard my best friend, Joanna, scream, "Wait, ow!". I turned around, and there was a tiny cut above her eyebrow. A little blood was dripping from it, and we all knew that Joanna didn't do it. I will never forget that.

I was in the kitchen messing around with my camera and was suddenly jolted forward. It was such a shock that I dropped my very expensive camera which broke into a million pieces. I immediately turned around and no one was there. I was the last one to enter the kitchen. The tour guide then mentioned it was getting cold in the room and she moved us into the next room. Bottom line, Sarah Winchester owes me a camera or whomever it was!

I was taking a tour of the house and when passing a small kitchen saw a small gray-haired lady sitting at a table. After the tour, I inquired as to why we had a tour guide dressed up like Sarah Winchester. She was informed that there wasn’t anyone in costume.

While on vacation from Nevada my family and I visited the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. We walked through the house which was absolutely beautiful. When we entered the kitchen the smell of baking filled the air. After our trip around the estate we asked our tour guide if they still used the kitchen in the house. She informed us that it has not been used in 80 years.
