The Santa Clara Valley runs south-southeast from the southern end of San Francisco Bay in Northern California in the United States. The northern, urbanized end of the valley is part of a region locally known as the "South Bay" and also part of the electronics, research, and manufacturing area known as Silicon Valley. Most of the Santa Clara Valley is in Santa Clara County, including its county seat, San Jose. The valley, named after the Spanish Mission Santa Clara, was for a time known as the Valley of Heart's Delight for its high concentration of orchards, flowering trees, and plants. Until the 1960s it was the largest fruit production and packing region in the world with 39 canneries.

In the history of great ideas, the latest from California's Winchester Mystery House might be the best ever. The Mystery House, one of the most haunted buildings in America, has been approved to let guests stay overnight and drink booze anywhere on premises. Sounds like the start of an excellent horror flick. Built in the 1800s by Winchester Rifle heiress Sarah Winchenster, the Mystery House is a winding maze of staircases to nowhere, tiny hallways, and trap doors. According to legend, Sarah came to believe she was haunted by the spirits of those killed by Winchester Rifles, and for 40 years until her death, she worked under the guidance of spirit mediums to turn her personal residence into a kind of "spirit trap" created to confuse the ghosts that stalked her. The result is a 160 room mansion built without blueprints and makes absolutely no sense. Even if the only translucent spirit you see during your overnight stay at the Winchester Mystery House is a bottle of Everclear, the new rules are great news for people hoping to experience a few bumps in the night at America's weirdest mansion. If the booze and ghosts aren't enough to lure you in for a visit, what about the chance to discover a secret room? The preservation team at the house occasionally finds previously undiscovered rooms in the house, including, most recently, an attic that had been boarded up since Sarah Winchester's death in 1922. It's an attic room that she had sealed off after the 1906 SF earthquake, as she was convinced that evil spirits caused the quake to trap her in the attic. Employees found all kinds of turn-of-the-century goodies inside, including a sewing machine, an organ, a couch, a dress form, and some paintings. Creepy. All together, that means the house has (at least) 161 rooms, including 9 kitchens, 13 bathrooms, 40 staircases, 47 fireplaces, 2000 doors, and 10,000 windows. -Roadtrippers Winchester Mystery House is an extravagant maze of Victorian craftsmanship – marvelous, baffling, and eerily eccentric, to say the least. Tour guides must warn people not to stray from the group or they could be lost for hours! Countless questions come to mind as you wander through the mansion – such as, what was Mrs. Winchester thinking when she had a staircase built that descends seven steps and then rises eleven? Some of the architectural oddities may have practical explanations. For example, the Switchback Staircase, which has seven flights with forty four steps, rises only about nine feet, since each step is just two inches high. Mrs. Winchester arthritis was quite severe in her later years, and the stairway may have been designed to accommodate her disability. The miles of twisting hallways are made even more intriguing by secret passageways in the walls. Mrs. Winchester traveled through her house in a roundabout fashion, supposedly to confuse any mischievous ghosts that might be following her. This wild and fanciful description of Mrs. Winchester’s nightly prowl to the Séance Room appeared in The American Weekly in 1928, six years after her death: “When Mrs. Winchester set out for her Séance Room, it might well have discouraged the ghost of the Indian or even of a bloodhound, to follow her. After traversing an interminable labyrinth of rooms and hallways, suddenly she would push a button, a panel would fly back and she would step quickly from one apartment into another, and unless the pursuing ghost was watchful and quick, he would lose her. Then she opened a window in that apartment and climbed out, not into the open air, but onto the top of a flight of steps that took her down one story only to meet another flight that brought her right back up to the same level again, all inside the house. This was supposed to be very discomforting to evil spirits who are said to be naturally suspicious of traps.” According to legend, Mrs. Winchester enacted a nightly séance to help with her building plans and for protection from “bad” spirits. While she sometimes drew up simple sketches of the building ideas, there were never any blueprints….or building inspectors! In the morning, she would meet with John Hansen, her dutiful foreman, and go over new changes and additions.
