Hammond Castle Museum: Thursday Evening Spiritualism Tours
October 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The American Spiritualism Movement enthralled America’s upper and middle class during the late 19th and early 20th centuries – John Hays Hammond Jr. and his wife Irene included. Both Hammonds took an active role in the movement, contributing to the body of work vastly in different ways. In honor of their involvement and interest in psychic capabilities, Hammond Castle Museum is offering the Spiritualism Tour.
Spiritualism Tours are offered alongside our Thursday Night Candlelight Tours Program from August through the end of October with a separate admissions process. These special tours delve into the history of the American Spiritualism Movement and the culture that formed around it, as well as the contributions of both Hammonds. We will discuss cultural phenomenons such as spirit photography and séances as well as the more scientific aspects of the movement such as Hammond’s research in ESP.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate those who arrive more than 10 minutes past the start of their ticketed tour time. Please note: all ticket sales are final and exchanges for other tour times are not offered.
