The Fox Sisters and Modern Spiritualism

In the winter of 1848, the Fox family began to hear mysterious rappings in their new Hydesville, NY home. Maggie and Kate Fox began to communicate with the source of the sounds and     went on to become 19th-century celebrities who brought about a new religion in spiritualism. Tracy Murphy, curator and custodian of the Fox Sisters’ Hydesville Memorial Park in Wayne County, will share their story and its connection to modern spiritualist beliefs. No registration required.
