I was a tour guide from 1986 to 1988. On my last day I was cleaning in Mrs Winchesters Bedroom and before i left I paused to say goodbye. I told her that it was my last day and thanked her for building the house because it gave me my first job. As I turned to leave something brushed past me and it felt for all the world that someone had kissed my cheek.

We heard what sounded like a piano playing in the room. When we entered we thought it was a speaker but no speakers could be found and no one was in the adjacent room.

I was in the hallyway on the floor where Mrs. Winchester was in and I ran into a man dressed as the appropite time frame butler, I asked if he works there and he said h used to work Mrs. Winchester, when I realized he was dead, I turned to talk to him again and he was gone! (twilight zone theme).

Don't remember exactly which room I was in, but looking out the window of th3e room we were in, and into a window on an upper floor where there shouldn't have been anyone, I saw what looked like the profile of someone watching us shuffle through the house.

years ago i had a dream about the winchester house. i didn't know it was the winchester house in the dream . that's one of the strange things .after i had the dream i saw a picture and story of the winchester house in the local newspaper. it may have been a few weeks or more between the dream and the article in the paper. but the picture of the winchester house ,in the paper,looked the same as the house in my dream .i was seeing it from above in my dream . the picture in the paper was an aerial view.it was a black and white picture. i know i saved the article but i can't find it . this happened years ago before all of the new popularity of the paranormal ,late 70's. i think .i know this is a strange little story .i always wondered why this happened.when i started seeing all the shows about haunted places ,i watched everything about the winchester house.i thought i could figure out why i had dreamed what i did.i still haven't figured it out.

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.

I was touring the front lawn with my son and was standing in front of the mansion. I felt like someone was watching us through the daisy windows but nobody was there. Admiring the window panes, I took a few pictures of them. In all of them you can see the reflection of the sky. In the first picture, however, there is a white fuzzy circle in the upper part the clear panel. Almost like someone standing there looking at us out of it.

It was coming right towards me. A figure, dressed like a maid, but you could see right through her. I blinked and it was gone. I think that my heart skipped about 10 beats.
