It is said to be one of the most haunted houses in the world.
In 1884, Sarah Winchester started building her estate, which had 8 rooms then, 24/7, to shelter the spirits killed by the Winchester rifles. When she died, the house had an astonishing 160 rooms. Yet, there was no plan – no official blueprints were drawn up, no architectural vision was created.
And PaintScaping is honored to have created the first 3d mapping ever at this historial landmark, as part of the new immersive show UNHINGED.
From September 6th 2019 to November 2nd, 2019, on select nights, see the house in a whole new way.
Alright, that was the pitch. But the fact is, it's pretty darn cool. Enough said. We never did a scary mapping. This is the first one.
At PaintScaping, we only enter thru the front door.
"Today, the house is known as the Winchester Mystery House, but at the time of its construction, it was simply Sarah Winchester’s House.
Sarah Winchester was the widow of William Wirt Winchester, heir to the Winchester Repeating Arms Company."
Born around 1840, Sarah Winchester grew up in a world of privilege. She spoke four languages, attended the best schools around, married well, and eventually gave birth to a daughter, Annie. However, tragedy struck in her late twenties when Annie died, followed by the death of Sarah’s husband William more than a decade later.
After William’s death in 1881, Sarah inherited roughly $20 million (over $500 million in 2019 dollars) as well as fifty percent of the Winchester Arms company which left her with a continued income equal to $1000 a day (or $26,000 a day in 2019 dollars).
