That place is creepy enough. I saw a special about it once. Didn't Mrs. Winchester think she was going to die or that spirits would be angry with her if she didn't keep adding to the house? It has a lot of dead ends and false halls if i remember. . .

The Brazoria area is teeming with folklore. You guys are giving me some good leads. It'd be great to have at least one Motospooky ride a month. I need to get a copy of the book Mike mentioned.

she kept adding on strange passage ways and doors that led to no where to confuse the spirits of the mansion.

Bragg Rd is a MUST. I grew up in the Beaumont area and would frequent Bragg Rd. Have seen some really weird unexplained stuff happen on that road.

Another place to check out is Blue Light Cemetery. To see the light when it comes is phenomenal. http://www.cemeteries-of-tx.com/Etx/.../bluelight.htm

I noticed that just west of Bragg Rd. is Felps Cemetery Rd. Anything of interest over there?

Used to be like seven stories until the unfinished bell tower fell during the great earthquake... we took tours every year and always seemed to change w the information. they only had one pic of her, where she was riding into the house(ya, the carriage went through the center of the house) and it was from a great distance away... very erie... but the house was designed to be full enclosed and she was able to spy on the wait staff from rooms that had doors in but no way out; pourous floors so watered plants could be watered once and the water fall through to lower levels.

i regret but a couple years before I moved away they started night tours at halloween night to rooms that were off limits during the normal tour. You normally walk for about an hour constantly and see I think 25% of the house.

during one of those tours they found another undiscovered room the first night because light was seen under the wall where a door was... was a big deal to them...

really erie but beautiful place at the same time...

Only difference between us and Ghost Hunters is we'd pizz off the spirits w our loud bikes not coax them out w talking; and we can get away alot faster on two wheels...

I be willing to get one....

u know, I was using my 5.pixel for the highway shots and they came out crystal clear...

would a 3.0 do ok video? Found a few stand-up designs very cheap and figured would be easier to mount w better view for bike video...

the thing about digicams is you cant adjust exposure. so at night everything will be solid black. camcorders have adjustable exposure.
