History of 19th Century Spiritualism
Cost: $35.00 non-members; $30.00 members
Did you know that Elizabeth Ewer, a former owner of the Folsom Tavern was a Spiritualist? She held lectures and meetings here. Come meet the Spirit Light Network, a paranormal investigative team made up of a group of dedicated shamans who teach the public about life after death, why hauntings take place, and how living many times unwittingly contribute to a haunting. As part of this entertaining evening, we will share the history of the museum as a hub of the Spiritualist Movement in Exeter that brought the subject of ghosts into the mainstream during the nineteenth century, discuss the subject of ghosts, then raise your personal energy vibration so, as we walk through the building, you will actually feel history.
The American Independence Museum is thrilled to be working with the SLN for this fun event to raise needed funds for the Museum while bringing a lesser known history of our Tavern to light. However, the views and opinions expressed at this event are those of the Spirit Light Network and do not represent the Museum.
