Spooky Southcoast was fortunate enough to be one of the few outside radio programs permitted to come into and broadcast from Lily Dale, the world’s largest and most respected Spiritualist community. For this special edition, Tim Weisberg is joined by legendary WBSM morning show host Phil Paleologos, as well as Ellen Ratner of Fox News and former U.S. Congressman Bob Ney, as they welcome some of the practicing mediums that call Lily Dale home.
About Lily Dale:
Lily Dale became the largest center of the Spiritualist movement as other similar organizations went into decline. Other communities such as Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp (Florida) and Camp Chesterfield (Indiana) were founded on similar principles and are still active organizations. The Fox Cottage of the Fox sisters fame was moved from Hydesville, New York and transported to Lily Dale in 1915 although on September 21, 1955, it was destroyed by fire.
Lily Dale is a place of pilgrimage for many Spiritualists and others interested in Spiritualism, the paranormal, and New Age topics. A large population of mediums and Spiritualist healers reside in Lily Dale year round. Television mediums Lisa Williams and Michelle Whitedove have homes here.
