Paranomal Atlas

In 1881, William Wirt Winchester (of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company) died, leaving his widow a vast sum of money and a large daily income. It was at this time Sarah Winchester started building. For 38 years she built the Winchester House with construction only stopping on her death.

Was it her guilt at all the deaths caused by Winchester rifles that saw her build the seven story house?
Was the nonsense construction used to fool and trap spirits?
