Greenhouse at Llanada

Is it just me, or is the greenhouse at Llanada Villa reminiscent of a Triple-Tau?!!

It also has thirteen glass roofs - thirteen being her Pythagorean Code Number!

Indeed. Here is a clip from Google Map that is orientated properly with North to the top:

I couldn't resist, so looked up the lat/lon of the Triple Tau.

Winchester Mystery House Triple Tau

Latitude: 37.317940
Longitude: -121.950950

I wanted to compare the latitude distance with my favorite Star spot at William and Mary College in Williamsburg VA.

Latitude: 37.317940
Longitude: -121.950950

The latitude difference is 3.26 miles, the longitude is difference is 2,462.01 miles.

It's a little closer to perfect that the Rosicrucian Headquarters which is slightly North and East of the Winchester Mystery house (about 2.3 miles driving).

I wonder if Sarah was aware of the Star(s) at William and Mary College.

Now I've been looking at the Shakespeare quotes in her stained glass windows. I'll try to stop in later and share what I am seeing. 🙂

Hey there, Mr. Fowler!!

What a wonderful discovery!!

I have to comment that the term "WInchester Mystery House" was never known to Sarah. She, for reasons which I have explained in my pamphlet "Llanada Villa: The House on the Plain" preferred a different name. "WMH" was first introduced by Harry Houdini when he visited the House in the 1920's. (Houdini is unquestionably to blame for the spooky legend. Before he came along, there were versions of the story, but none ever mentioned hauntings or spirits. He himself was a spiritualist, but interestingly, also a Freemason - although there's no evidence that he was ever a Baconian. I find it unlikely that he ever made the connection between Sarah and Bacon.)

"Winchester Mansion" may have been during her lifetime. Richard would be the first person I would ask.

I'm not sure, but maybe "Llanada Villa" was named before she bought it. It's a very fun name to play with, but not for me today. 😉

Was Houdini a "Baconian"? Was Sarah?

The term "Baconian" is not the same now as it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It appears Sarah was aware of Shakespeare's works, and I hope to expand on that. Might not be today as it is going so fast.

My opinion is that from lets say from the 1880s through the 1920s, being in the "Baconian" club mostly meant his name was not thrown out there in public much. It was a Rosicrucian secret, maybe Freemason for the few Freemasons who knew. Shakespeare Authorship had not even hit the internet by then!

Oh yea, there was no internet back then...

Sarah may have been connected and knew things we may never rediscover. She came into a connected family for sure. Rosicrucian, I'd bet money. Freemason? Sure.

Could a person, or married couple, around 1900 live as both Rosicrucian and Freemason?

Knowing all about Bacon, but not speaking. Yet creating art.

King Richard says:

  Scaena Quarta. 
 
  Enter Richard.
Rich. I haue bin studying, how to compare
This Prison where I liue, vnto the World:
And for because the world is populous,
And heere is not a Creature, but my selfe,
I cannot do it: yet Ile hammer't out.
My Braine, Ile proue the Female to my Soule,
My Soule, the Father: and these two beget
A generation of still breeding Thoughts;
And these same Thoughts, people this Little World
In humors, like the people of this world,
For no thought is contented. The better sort,
As thoughts of things Diuine, are intermixt
With scruples, and do set the Faith it selfe
Against the Faith: as thus: Come litle ones: & then again,
It is as hard to come, as for a Camell
To thred the posterne of a Needles eye.
Thoughts tending to Ambition, they do plot
Vnlikely wonders; how these vaine weake nailes
May teare a passage through the Flinty ribbes
Of this hard world, my ragged prison walles:
And for they cannot, dye in their owne pride.

That fits with Sarah's 22 year canvas, and also what syncs with my life today. 😉

Marvin, you are a genius. Sarah Winchester catches your interest, and R Wagner is a great teacher. I'm sure you've been on the phone with him for many hours.

I've known about her a decade or so, even dug in a bit.

She was leaving a cryptic story knowing full well someone would get it. Richard so far is furthest on the path. I'm in, but too busy.

Of course that is the Triple Tau. Is the lat/lon part of the history? Maybe not, that's just my "thought", like a "people" in a "little world" in my puny brain.

Sarah may have been an accepted "leak" of something for the future. Silly ol' girl always remodeling, creating, using whatever tools she had, hiring whoever knew how to make results.

I looked at over a hundred images one can buy of the interior of the Winchester House. I have one very interest:

The old books on the shelves!! Bookshelves full of books! Old books!

I want to see the title of every single one them!!!

Did she have a 1623 First Folio???

And wide vnclaspe the tables of their thoughts,
To euery tickling reader

"Vnclapse" reminds me of the "secret book."

Light-of-Truth,

Thank you very much! I actually haven't spoken with Mr. Wagner on the phone, although we occasionally send emails. Sarah was undeniably a philosophical genius. Her Foreman, John Hanson, of which very little is known, was undeniably a master builder. I have studied American architecture extensively, and the House is a prime example - if not the best in the country - of the Queen Anne style. I have made several drawings showing the House as it looked in its various stages of development.

Here is a passage from the aforementioned pamphlet, which I wrote as a companion to Wagner's writings, focusing mainly on the symbols of the house, its architecture, and how it may have looked at one point in history - i.e., 1906; before the earthquake:

 

EVERY OBSERVER must remember that the façade of the House changed drastically after the earthquake. The left gable, as previously stated, was once fitted with a fretwork balcony and topped by a cupola, both of which were destroyed. The right Palladian balcony was originally semi-detached but was encased in a second large gable, most likely after sustaining damage.

          The current façade is an architectural mess, the result of the shoddily repaired damage, but it still retains aspects of its original design. As in all well-executed Queen Anne architecture, the façade is asymmetrical, but balanced. Notice that the second story literally hovers over the porte-cochere, supported merely by the wooden posts cemented into the stone wall below. The first story of the central portion is symmetrical, but as one’s gaze moves higher up the façade, asymmetries begin to appear. The entrance is in the exact center of the porte-cochere.

          One immediately notices that the House faces East, towards the rising sun. In a Blue Lodge room, the Worshipful Master sits in the East, for East is the direction associated with enlightenment in the Masonic literature. It was also the direction which King Solomon’s Temple faced, and as will later be revealed, the House is in many ways a modern metaphor for this original House of Enlightenment.  

          Upon entering the gates, one first sees the façade through two palm trees. These trees represent the Masonic pillars of Boaz and Jachin, which originally appeared at the entrance of the first Temple. It must be noted that the two palms were planted by Sarah after the earthquake and were not a part of the original design. The original plantings were much denser, so the House could not be seen well from the street. In the garden’s pre-1906 configuration, a drive led straight through the gates to the entrance, but now the path curves around a lawn containing the trees.

Also, the only pre-earthquake images of the House which I have managed to find are all of the exterior. It seems unlikely that Sarah, as an exceptionally private individual, would allow photographers to visually document the interiors of her home. Here are all the "before" images I've managed to find:

Of course, you can go East exactly 2,462 miles and be in Williamsburg VA where the Sun rises in Bacon's New Atlantis.

EDIT:

If Sarah could have sat in her swing on her front porch facing East with a magic telescope that would pierce through the curve of the Earth and see through trees and rocks, this would be her view for all practical purposes:

Last night laying in bed, "if" I had time today, I was going to mention we were in 3-13 (March 13), maybe 13-3 in Canada and places where day number comes first.

In the Sonnets 3(March)-13 is in Tier 3 fully contained in Sonnet 31. So much fun to share!

Tier 13 begins with Sonnet 133 and in sync with Day 313!

All that is good, but Sarah and her 13 is way more fun! And right on time! 🙂

Those Shakespeare quotes on the stained glass windows, the first is on this page 22:

"Vnclapse" is a clue. Look at this page in Henry IV, Part 1 (page 52):

From the top of the page there are 157 words before "Rose" not counting the words in parenthesis.

Most impressive, Light-of-Truth! What, then, is your interpretation of the window's message? That the entire house is a "secret book" waiting to be unclasped?

Hey, Eric!

All the footage I've managed to find is from later than the 1940's. This is not surprising, given that the House did not attract national attention until around that time, and small-scale documentary productions were fairly uncommon. That being said, there is a sort of documentary from the 50's (early 60's??) that shows much of the grounds, accompanied by a painfully inaccurate narration detailing the legend that most people now believe. I don't remember the title, or else I would send you a link. It's all in black and white, but the House appears to be overgrown and faded. A few rare color photos which I've managed to locate confirm that the house was indeed in disrepair. (I think it was repainted/restored sometime in the early 80's - around the time that the hideous visitor center was added.) Here are those images:

Notice that this particular image is taken from the same vantage as the image of Sarah in her four-wheel carriage. Her bedroom is on the right; the "13th bathroom" is on the left.

I'm not able to claim I have an interpretation.

On the left windows the word "UNCLASP" triggered what I have know about the "Secret booke." To me the "Secret booke" is the First Folio, a Rosicrucion Secret Book.

Peace Cousin, say no more.

But that's just my own initial connection. However, Sarah is using a quote, "wide vnclaspe the tables of their thoughts," from Troilus and Cressida:
 
Ther's a language in her eye, her cheeke, her lip;
Nay, her foote speakes, her wanton spirites looke out
At euery ioynt, and motiue of her body:
Oh these encounterers so glib of tongue,
That giue a coasting welcome ete it comes;
And wide vnclaspe the tables of their thoughts,
To euery tickling reader: set them downe,
For sluttish spoyles of opportunitie;
And daughters of the game.
 
I feel it is a more personal message from Sarah that these lines are about herself and her creative work in the house.  In fact, the second window from Richard II gives me the same feeling. My hunch is that both of these concepts refer to Sarah's obsession of arranging her "thoughts" in a physical structure. Her mind is her prison, full of thoughts, and by unclasping them she is building this amazing house. She was eccentric, to say the least. But maybe there was a method to her madness.
Try reading both places and see if they appear like related ideas to you.
 
Enter Richard.

Cool little synchronicity.

Richard II says the following which I felt was Sarah describing her work:

Rich. I haue bin studying, how to compare
This Prison where I liue, vnto the World:
And for because the world is populous,
And heere is not a Creature, but my selfe,
I cannot do it: yet Ile hammer't out.

I went poking around a little and found this quote from a SF Chronicle article of Feb 24, 1895 about the house:

https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/real-story-of-sarah-winchester-mystery-house-12552842.php

By 1895, the house was large enough to draw the speculating eyes of the community. The Feb. 24, 1895 issue of the San Francisco Chronicle ran an article that almost single-handedly laid the foundation for the Winchester Mystery House legend.

"The sound of the hammer is never hushed,” it reported. “... The reason for it is in Mrs. Winchester's belief that when the house is entirely finished she will die."

🙂

There is an old photo of Sarah in the same article:

Mrs. Sarah Winchester in only one of two known images of her. This was taken in San Jose.

I just paid for a Day Pass from the SF Chronicle to get to the Feb 24, 1895 article (page 7). This may be the first public story about the Winchester House, "THE STRANGE STORY OF A SAN JOSE HOUSE"

And for because the world is populous,
And heere is not a Creature, but my selfe,
I cannot do it: yet Ile hammer't out.
 
On the same page of the archive is a fascinating article about 19 Moquis Native Americans in prison at Alcatraz.
 
 
 
 
This is relevant even today in UNCLE SAM of America.
 
UNCLE SAM has summarily arrested nineteen Moqui Indians down near he Mexican line and taken them to the military prison on Alcatraz Island, there to stay for a year, all because they would not let their children go to school.
 
Makes me want to grab, or hire, a hammer to make noise to the day I pass away! 🙂
 
But I guess, the Mystery House that Sarah so desperately kept building for fear she would die when it was finished, is my tiny Baconian legacy and the B'Hive Forum for me. LOL
 
Yea, CJ, grouchy old Master with a vast scope of Knowledge, I'd love to hear how Sarah, like myself, is lost in her "thoughts", in a "prison" of her mind, with all those dancing "little people." (And it is a valid statement to tell me!)  🙂
 
The purpose of Sarah's Creation is distorted and perverted now. It may not be a tribute to Bacon, but could be, and certainly was not a crazy woman's attempt to confuse ghosts. But it was a inspired physical manifestation of one California's most wealthy living people, even though a widow. There is enough in the designs to suggest she was informed on RC/FM concepts and knew of Bacon/Shakespeare on some level. Of course, her high-end hired architects were likely connected to the connections connected therein.
 
At the very least it makes a great study that I'd consider of Baconian interest being an example of someone, Sarah, acting on what Richard II describes in Act 5, Scene 4.
 
 
 
NOTE: I want to credit the images I have carefully cropped to get my points across while not stepping on the copyright agreement from the SFC archive owners.
 
Page 7 of February 24, 1895 of the San Francisco Chronicle is a fun page to read. I think a single ariticle fee is $3.95 in dollars, a Day Pass was $9.95 for up to 20 articles. I've download one page and two articles have been mentioned. Poking through the 30 pages of this articles and especially the ads are fun to see. SF in 1895!
 
 
Anyone interested in the Sarah Winchester should read this article as it sets the stage for the twisted legacy that she did not agree to. Sad, but one should know if they want to know her.

HOLY GOD!!! 

I've never seen this drawing!!!

So fascinating. I have to disagree with your statement that, "It may not be a tribute to Bacon, but could be, and certainly was not a crazy woman's attempt to confuse ghosts. But it was a inspired physical manifestation of one California's most wealthy living people, even though a widow. There is enough in the designs to suggest she was informed on RC/FM concepts and knew of Bacon/Shakespeare on some level. Of course, her high-end hired architects were likely connected to the connections connected therein."

I mainly disagree with the part that says, "It may not be a tribute to Bacon." Sorry to inform you, but here's some pretty damming evidence, taken again from my pamphlet - which, I can assure you, was thoroughly researched: 

 

RICHARD A. WAGNER, certainly the most respected Llanadian, states that to enter the House, the candidate must first climb the Winding Stairs in the northwest corner. While this is certainly a valid statement, regarding the House prior to the earthquake, one must recognize that the Winding Stairs were not added until sometime in the 1910s or 20s, as evidenced by the marks on the walls left by a previous stairway configuration. And so, we have a conundrum: What was Sarah’s motive for building the Winding Stairs, (which, as any Mason will know, represent the candidate’s ascension to greater knowledge, and thus are obviously the symbolic point of entrance), when the impressive front doors were already installed? There is no obvious answer, and as we only have the partially intact version of the House to work with, we cannot ever fully understand Sarah’s complete vision.

          This resource will focus the initiate’s entrance on the front of the house, by way of the vestibule doors. The doors are, simply put, a work of art. But as with all the art in the House, they contain a metaphor. The doors were crafted in Europe to Sarah’s own specifications and contain superb art glass. The upper glass panels consist of two 3s facing each other, representing Bacon’s code number 33. The space in the center is occupied by 7 fleur-de-lis – so, with two panels, two 7s. The fleur-de-lis is a well-known Baconian symbol, appearing 3 times on his crest. The significance of the “double 7” will be explained later.

          If one peers closer, he will notice that each of the 3s is made up of two C-like symbols. These symbols are called Tubal-Cains, and they are a revised version of the original symbol used by John Dee, Bacon’s mentor, as his hieroglyphic signature. The original version of the Tubal-Cain had a very erotic appearance, and so, Sarah, being a respectable lady, had to change it. The new symbol consists of a C wrapping around two balls and appears elsewhere in the House. The design is also likely a reference to Bacon’s famous “double C” headpiece, which he used on the title page of nearly all his works.

          The lower glass panels in the doors each have 11 fleur-de-lis – 11 representing the name Sarah Pardee, as does the “Llanada Villa” inscription on the right gate pier. At the bottom of both panels, we find a symbol that is not easily traced to Bacon, and whose meaning is yet undiscovered.

 

The drawing also gives us a rare glimpse of Sarah's second gable configuration - likely an extension of the gable on the previous farmhouse. It's interesting to note that the article says the house is only two stories. This confirms my suspicion that the 7-story tower and 3d gable were added sometime after 1895. 

Thanks for posting this!!
