1886 to 1922 – The Winchester House Was Under Construction For Longer Than Any

In 1886, Sarah Winchester and her husband began construction on the hundred plus room Winchester House. During the 1906 Earthquake the top two levels of the House were damaged causing those levels to be removed. The home would be under construction, for thirty eight years, until Sarah Winchester’s death in 1922. To Thai date, the Winchester House was continuously under construction longer than any other home in the world.
