    Spiral Staircases: Their Beauty and Mystery

    The Beauty and History of Spiral Staircases

    Spiral staircases aren't just beautiful to look at; they're also accompanied by mystery and legend. As one legend goes, in the late 1800s, the nuns of the New Mexico Loretto Chapel needed a stairway to get to the choir loft. The chapel was small, so a regular staircase would not do. For nine days, the nuns prayed for the help of St. Joseph. Soon, a stranger came to the door and told the nuns he would build a staircase. For three months, he locked himself in the chapel.
