Town of Spiritualists

Field review by the editors.

Cassadaga, Florida

Formed in 1894 as a winter home for northern spiritualists, George P. Colby, the town's father, was led through the wilderness by his spirit guide, Seneca, to this spot. Today's Cassadaga (AKA "The Psychic Center of the World") is inhabited year-round. The old Spiritualist Camp and Colby Memorial Temple still stands, a destination in recent decades by an irregular procession of New Age healers and weekend ghost whisperers.

Though official publications talk of extending a "spiritual carpet of friendship," there have been as many as five separate spiritualist groups sparring for dollars and attention in this tiny town.

Well over two dozen psychic mediums are in residence. Stroll along Cassadaga's streets and you'll see lots of people sitting on screened front porches. You might feel their third eyes silently watching as you walk by, an astral wi-fi network downloading brainwaves...

The historic Cassadaga Hotel offers easy access to local mediums. To clear the spiritual pathways, guest rooms have no phones or tvs, and no hot water after ten o'clock.
