Fox Sisters Spirit Table

The Rochester Historical Society is now located in the Rundell Central Library, a short distance from the Fox Sister's Monument. A centerpiece of their collection is the actual table that the Fox sisters used to communicate with the dead. It is open so that you can see the hidden mechanism they used.
