This fantastical Victorian mansion could be the creation of Dr. Seuss. It includes 47 fireplaces and 17 chimneys, not to mention staircases that lead nowhere and doorways opening onto sheer drops. Rifle heiress Sarah L. Winchester built the house after a medium told her that the spirits of those killed by the Winchester rifle were angry, and that the only way to appease them was to construct a house for them—without ever stopping. Work on the house continued for 38 years, until Winchester's death.
