Sarah's Ghost House
By: Emily Mosty
In the late 1880s the house was started added to. When she bought the house it had 8 bedrooms and was sitting on a plot of 44 acres of the land of San Jose, a city about 50 miles south of San Francisco. She had inherited 20 million dollars from her husband so she had plenty of money for the house. Sarah hired 18 carpenters, 12 gardeners, a countless number of plumbers, plasterers, stonemasons, and painters. They worked on the house for 38 years everyday all day long. The ghost didn't always like the plans and changed them some times. In the end she paid a total of 5 million dollars on the house.
