Preliminary Sunlight
Today we visit Darlinghurst Gaol- Sydney's oldest standing heritage listed gaol complex. Join us as we explore its history and the ghosts its halls now hold, as well as proper referencing techniques, naked art classes, and a platypus named Bloop. Ghost Stories in the Sunlight wishes to acknowledge and pay respects to Gadigal people and elders, past and present, on whose land Darlinghurst Gaol stands. The land was never ceded.

The Winchester Mystery House
Aug 3 2023
The Winchester Mystery House
In 1886 when Sarah Winchester purchased Llanada Villa in San Jose, it was an eight-room farmhouse. When she passed away 1922, there were some 160 rooms, 10,000 windows, 2,00 doors, 13 bathrooms and other fascinating architectural decisions following the 35 year almost continuous construction on what later became known as The Winchester Mystery House. Whether it the construction were at the whims of the spirits of those who had been killed at the hands of the Winchester rifle or otherwise, the result was a fantastical tangle of construction and stories still ongoing today.   Sources include: https://www.hauntedrooms.co.uk/six-famous-ghost-stories-famous-ghosts https://winchestermysteryhouse.com/sarahs-story/ https://winchestermysteryhouse.com/timeline/ https://allthatsinteresting.com/winchester-mystery-house https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Attraction_Review-g33020-d144412-Reviews-Winchester_Mystery_House-San_Jose_California.html https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/winchester-mystery-house https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a23149/winchester-rifle/ https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2018/02/winchester-helen-mirren-haunted-house-san-jose https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Winchester https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/23296-marasmus _____ All rights reserved (c) 2023 Ghost Stories in the Sunlight.
