The Winchester area of San Jose, California gains its name from early resident Sarah Lockwood Winchester, a Connecticut native and heiress to fifty percent ownership of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, who built the famous Winchester Mystery House. Located between San Tomas Expressway and State Route 17/Interstate 880, and between the city's borders with Santa Clara and Campbell, centered on Winchester Blvd. Winchester is one of the West Valley neighborhoods, with West San Jose to the west and Burbank and the Rose Garden to the east. It is the home to the Westfield Valley Fair, and Santana Row shopping centers.
