WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE

ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF MYSTERY.
ONE HUNDRED YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE
SARAH L. WINCHESTER FIRST ARRIVED IN
THE SANTA CLARA VALLEY WITH NEARLY
$20,000,000 AND BEGAN QUIETLY ADDING
ROOMS TO A SMALL COUNTRY FARMHOUSE,
THEN THREE MILES WEST OF SAN JOSE.
TEN YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE MAS-
SIVE RESTORATION OF THE WINCHESTER
HOUSE AND GARDENS COMMENCED AS A
TRIBUTE TO AMERICA'S AND SAN JOSE'S
BICENTENNIALS.
TODAY THE WINCHESTER ESTATE IS ONCE
AGAIN THE SHOWPLACE OF THE VALLEY!
ALTHOUGH THE "LADY OF MYSTERY" WAS
CALLED FROM HER EARTHLY HOME IN
1922, WE BELIEVE THESE EVENTS HAVE
PERMITTED SARAH L. WINCHESTER, IN HER
OWN WAY, TO ACHIEVE A UNIQUE KIND OF
ETERNAL LIFE.
THIS PLAQUE DEDICATED ON FRIDAY,
APRIL 13, 1984 BY THE WINCHESTER
MYSTERY HOUSE RESTORATION BOARD AND
MOUNTAIN CHARLIE CHAPTER No. 1850
