Mystery House to be Declared an Historical Landmark (Updated over a year ago)
KPIX Eyewitness News report from May 11th 1974 by Rita Trevino in San Jose (CA) featuring the Winchester Mystery House. She explains that this tourist attraction is about to be named an official historical landmark by the State of California. Includes scenes of Trevino and a tour party being shown around the house by staff and glimpses of a waxwork model of Sarah L. Winchester, who financed and built the house between 1884-1922. Ends with a spokesman expressing his belief that with visitors being regularly introduced to the legacy of Sarah Winchester year after year, "You could say that she has achieved some kind of eternal life. And this I think is what she was really after."
