The Valle Monte League and the Winchester Mystery House have been collaborating on community giving for more that 30 years. Since 1987, San Jose’s #1 attraction has donated packages available for auction bidding ranging from VIP Group tour tickets, to private parties for up to 100 people. The relationship between these two organizations has enabled a community awareness of many non-profit organizations including Bill Wilson Center, Services for Brain Injury, Hearts & Minds Activity Center, Family Services, Centre for Living with Dying, and many others in the San Francisco Bay Areas. For years the Winchester Mystery House has sponsored ads for Christmas Tree Elegance and donated planning meeting space for our signature event planning meetings in addition to donating live and silent auction items for the Christmas Tree Elegance events.
Sarah Winchester was a true woman of independence, drive, and courage who lives on in legend as a grieving widow who continuously built (and built and built) onto her initially small, two-story farmhouse to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by her husband’s firearms company.
Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House, and see the bizarre attributes that give the mansion its name: a window built into the floor, stairs leading to ceilings, doors that open onto blank walls, and a seeming obsession with the numeral “13,” cobweb motifs.
