    I didn't see anything about a creepy doll. It's a really neat find though! I'd love to go there someday.

    I lived in San Jose for 12 years and never made it to the Mystery house. Years ago when I was in college, I was supposed to go with a group of friends and we ended up going to the movies, instead.

    Considering how the house is built I can only imagine how many over rooms could be discovered. Still that is really awesome.

    But the fact that I have a phobia of dolls just makes it all the more creepy too, gosh I hate them.

    That's not a creepy doll... you guys just keep looking for goth and gore where not exists. She's actually dressed very nicely and just laying about, relaxing. :lol 

    Porcelain or bisque dolls usually just have basic features, some not considered all that pretty even tho they're a few that were pretty in the face, the more expensive ones, I'm sure.

    I have one that was my Gramm's, sadly some of it's hair has fallen out, a couple of fingers are chipped, but it's still not creepy.

    And this is another reason why I believe this is one of the creepiest places on the planet right now. I don't believe it's haunted, but it is just so bizarre, and it has an interesting history behind it.

    It's the Winchester's Taj Mahal.... done crazy. :D 

    On of the History channel types, maybe Smithsonian Channel, had a hour episode on the building of and the history behind why it's the way it is.

    "After her husband's death from tuberculosis in 1881, Sarah Winchester inherited more than $20.5 million. She also received nearly fifty percent ownership of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, giving her an income of roughly $1,000 per day, equivalent to about $23,000 a day in 2013. These inheritances gave her a tremendous amount of wealth which she used to fund the ongoing construction."

    IIRC, for 38 years, you can build a lot of rooms in 38 years.

    Neat! Saw a few documentaries about this place, and even Ghost Adventures did two episodes locked down inside it overnight. Very interesting history behind its construction.

    I so wanna go there. Saw the documentaries and read about it.

    Can you see all rooms in one day or will it take multiple days?

    They have guided tours that take 30-40 minutes. Won't take that long.

    I've never met you, nor seen the doll in question, but I am quite certain it is, in fact, quite creepy. Because they all are. :lol 

    For a brief moment, I was thinking of the "murder castle" rather then the Winchester Home, but still, neat find.

    You dissing my Gram's doll??? Awww man, it's got special family history: she rec'd it when she was 5 years old and had pneumonia, they thought she might die, you know, back in the day, so the fact she survived & with her lucky doll, it became one of her most precious possessions... and then she gave it to my mom, who passed it on to me. It's all about family history.
    Do I have it on display?, nope, because it's not good for them to be exposed to light and stuff, especially the clothing, but it's special to me because it was special to her..... and she & my mom were very special to me.
    Nothing creepy about that.

    You menz are too easily jittered out. :lol

    That haus is scary as all hell (maybe not as scary as a porcelain doll but plenty scary) and the lady who built it was stone nuts! I wouldn't walk through the front door let alone some secret room that had a skeleton sitting in a rocking chair by a window, wearing a grey wig and old lady dress. No. Thanks.

    There is a big stucco castle in Death Valley that's hard to beat. It's a mashup of southwestern and medieval. The main hall has a long table and oversized suits of armor that should be scary but there is pottery, tile, and textiles arranged around everything in a perfect conflict of mood. They bought a huge calliope from a worlds fair an built it into a wing of the castle it's pretty amazing to see it still works. Even if you think these places are weird it's one of the few things to keep towns from being pure chain store repetition anymore.
