View from 4th story. Mrs. Winchester was a nutcase and would ring this bell at all hours to call the spirits when she had a séance.

  The story goes that Mrs. Winchester lived in remorse for all the lives taken by Winchester weapons, and that their ghosts would haunt her house once it was completed. So she kept up construction constantly to ward off spirits.

  I've heard that one; and the reason for the oddities was to confuse spirits.

  She was actually building it for them, not to protect herself against them. Otherwise she wouldn't have attracted spirits via a seanse. She is said to have been given the instructions how to build it by them.

  That's ridiculous. Poor woman, see what superstition does to people?
