Spiritualism Tour at Hammond Castle Museum
Spirits, tombstones, and skulls, oh my! Starting July 11th, we will be offering our Spiritualism Tours as a additional tour option during the Candlelight Tours on Thursday evenings (this is a separate tour from the Candlelight Tour) . These special tours, taking place at 6:30 PM and 7:30 PM, will delve into the history of Spiritualism and its practices, as well as its peculiar connection with Hammond Castle. We will discuss topics such as the Ouija board, spirit photography, séances, and the science behind Spiritualism.
John Hays Hammond Jr. and his wife Irene Fenton Hammond were both fascinated by the Spiritualist movement so we will discuss their personal involvement and experiments, as well some of the local legends that have sprung up around Hammond Castle over the past few decades.
