Lily Dale promotes itself as
"the world’s largest center for spiritual development and the practice of
the Spiritualist religion." It was founded in
1879 as a community of spiritualists and a number of people still call this
place, located about 60 miles south of Buffalo, home.
In addition to providing the usual
faith healing, and other
spiritualist entertainments, Lily Dale charges admission to walk
the grounds and visit its museum, pet cemetery, and other
features such as the childhood home of
sisters, generally described as the founders of the
spiritualist movement in America.
