Did You Know?
While it may be coincidental, the choice of the name "Winchester" for the family is interesting. There is a rather famous mansion in California built by Sarah Winchester, wife of the gun magnate, which was under constant construction for thirty-eight years for paranormal reasons. According to legend, the reason for the constant building, was that a medium told Mrs. Winchester that if she ever stopped building, the spirits of people killed by people using Winchester rifles, would come after her. The strange design of the mansion is also attributed to this. It was built with dead ends and stairs to nowhere, allegedly to confuse spirits. See more
