This house might be safer than others if it was constructed in a certain way, but it can't be deemed "safest" because every earthquake moves in its own unique manner. It's not just the size of the quake, but way in which it moves.

I've actually started researching this house now and would love to visit this one. People are like "but you live 2-3 hours away from THE haunted house."

true but the difference here is you're allowed in this house... unless you know the owners, you'll never get into the Amityville house... or maybe if you offered a CRAPLOAD of money, and even then, they might turn you down lol

The Winchester house is certainly worth visiting. Go during the Halloween season and they do midnight candle light tours.

I live an hour away from there and have yet to visit the Winchester house.I dont need to visit Amityville,The Bay Area has enough hauntings of its own.
There are too many things I cant explain that happened in that house.Harry,our dog at the time,tried to hang himself. G.Lutz

Why were the stairs like that? Weird. And was there any proof of a haunting?

Yea but its a tour of the house. Which is probably a good thing because if someone who didnt know the place walked around he might not be scene again. not in that house. Maybe they can give a tour of the Amityville house on Halloween or somthin.

112 Ocean Ave: Yeah if you find the segment let me know, I'd love to see the house. But yeah, they'd probably end up dead from some of the areas in that house. Creeps me out.

It was at the same time. Technically not a tour, but a "tag sale" (though I'm sure a lot of the people there just used the opportunity to tour the house).

I remember this house now!

Wasn't there some
sort of deal where she felt she had to constantly
be adding to the house or something? Like there was
always some kind of construction going on?

Yes she said that the ghosts in the house told her what to build and how to build it. She felt that if she stopped building the ghosts would kill her. She built and built until the day she died!

I would like to visit this house one day,
maybe not so much for the ghost aspect,
but to see the construction and such:)

WOW, it's hard to wonder if she really saw ghosts or if she was just nutty. But the construction is just beyond words. Does anyone own the house now or is it a museum?

I think she was just nutty and had a guilty concious that she made lots of money from a product that killed many people, though as the old saying goes, "Guns don't kill people, people kill people".
