A bit of quirky and creepy Americana, full of many architectural oddities (like the front door not aligning with the roof peak above it).  Then there are the ghosts  8)

There was a documentary on Youtube a while back. They guy basically went on the tour and filmed it. It was interesting.

From 1886 to 1922 construction seemingly never ceased as the original eight-room farmhouse grew into the world’s most unusual and sprawling mansion, featuring:

    24,000 square feet
    10,000 windows
    2,000 doors
    160 rooms
    52 skylights
    47 stairways and fireplaces
    17 chimneys
    13 bathrooms
    6 kitchens
    Built at a price tag of the $5 million dollars in 1923 or $71 million today

I sure wouldn't want the job of window washer there.  :)
