The Unseen World
What exactly happens to us when we die? In the town of Lily Dale, New York, resides over 50 spiritualists and mediums with one common answer: We don't.
Founded in 1879, Lily Dale is considered the largest center for Spiritualists and Freethinkers in the world. With the belief that spirits of the dead can actively communicate with the living, some mediums charge up to $180 for a reading.
Formed during the height of the spiritualist movement—when [Spiritualism] is believed to have had over eight million followers in the U.S. and U.K.—Lily Dale has attracted up to 22 thousand visitors a year. It has been the subject of numerous books, articles, and an HBO documentary, and continues to inspire those looking for life—after life as we know it.
