Cassadaga: Speaking of the Dead

Venue:Matheson History Museum
513 E. University Ave.
Gainesville, FL 32601
Gary Monroe was allowed unrestricted access to Cassadaga, the Spiritualist community that was founded in central Florida more a century ago on the principle of continuous life, the idea that spirits of the dead commune with the living. Though the founders of Cassadaga have passed on to the “spirit plane,” the quaint Victorian town remains the oldest continuously active center of the religion in the South. This visual presentation looks at the people, place and practices that exemplify Spiritualism-the Camp’s distinctive architecture, ritual life, core beliefs, séances, and healing work.
