One of the most unusual houses in the United States is the Winchester Mansion, in San Jose, California. Sarah Winchester was the wife of Oliver Winchester, owner of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. At Oliver's death in 1881, Sarah inherited over $20,000,000 and an income of $1,000 per day, an incredible sum for the time. However, Sarah was deeply troubled and spoke to a medium about her troubles. It's unclear as to exactly what was said, but popular belief holds that the medium told Sarah that her family was cursed by the spirits of those who had been killed by Winchester rifles, and that she had to move west and build a house and never stop building, either as a home for the spirits or to confuse the spirits, which she did. Every day, she would give the foreman a new set of instructions, and work would continue around-the-clock. This ad hoc, spirit-focused style of construction led to many oddities, including staircases that dead-end at ceilings, windows in floors, and doors that open onto two-storey drops. By the time of her death in 1922, the house had around 160 rooms (an exact count is difficult to obtain due to the confusing floor plan). The house is now a tourist attraction.

This is the 1963 documentary (narrated by Lillian Gish) of the Winchester Mystery House.



and this is the movie, 'Winchester', which came out in 2018:
