The following quip was my response to some information about Cassdaga, FL and I thought it had regional relevance here, thus accounting for the cross-post...

I am intrigued by the reference to the Colby Temple seance. Do you know if they have a true, deep trance materializing medium on staff? I know this sort of seance was quite popular in years past, but had sort of dismissed the idea as not so much hoaxing as "active imagination" since it seems that it went out of vogue just about the time our technology gained to the point that materializations could be documented on film for instance.

I have been revisiting the subject recently and believe that there were genuine manifestations in such seances. Perhaps it is the private nature of such things that they are not publicized widely or that skeptics are not invited in with equipment to investigate. I was told by a friend recently who attended some amazing materialization sessions in the 1950s that it was much harder to get results when there were critics in the audience. It seemed as if the spirits were more willing to "preach to the choir" so to speak, and needed the positive thought energy of believers.

Also, I have discovered that there are little towns like this scattered all over the country. Someone just told me about Lily Dale, NY the other day:

Interesting to see this in the description:
