Or another place I'll never go to. Lily Dale, NY, City Of Light, birthed the Spiritualist movement in the 1800's. I heard about Lily Dale a long time ago and it piqued my interest.
Those wacky Victorians, without television nor computers or iPhones took to soothsayers, crystal balls and ghosties.
Of course, if they went to Lily Dale, they didn't need to communicate with modern day conveniences.
Here is the former tree where mystical things happened. It became a stump and today is a fenced off cement platform.
Lily Dale was a popular destination, as it is today. About 250 year round residents live in cute Victorian houses. Today, it is inhabited by mystics, mediums and clairvoyants. In summer, they open their community to thousands of visitors for readings and shopping, programs etc. Famous psychics and even Deepak Chopra has spoken there. Signs hang on the doors when the mediums are taking customers.
Before you scoff, here is one story. Lucille Ball, who lived nearby in Jamestown, went for readings as did many other famous people. While still young she was told she would meet a Cuban man and become a famous comedian one day.
Residents must go through rigorous testing and study for two years before they are allowed to practice in Lily Dale. Wouldn't it be fun to visit with them? Many 'speak' to the spirits around you and give you messages from beyond. One woman spoke of a childhood friend speaking to her from an unseen spirit world.
Myself, I think I'd rather hear about other things, like past lives and future events rather than spirits hovering around me. There is lots of info on the net about Lily Dale. Have a look if you are interested. I find it fascinating, but will never go to western NY. Too many other places I'd choose, but probably won't ever get to see either.
