An 1890 one-room school house is now home to the Lily Dale Museum. The museum is located at the corner of Library Street and East Street across from the Healing Temple.
Experience a walk back in time amid photos, artifacts and memorabilia from the first days of the Spiritualist movement and the founding of Lily Dale. Enjoy a vintage pictorial display of pioneer landmarks of the region. You’ll find a display of items from the Fox family, whose widely witnessed contact with the Spirit world helped fuel the birth of Spiritualism.
The Susan B. Anthony women’s suffrage display has been noted as one of the best in the country. Precipitated Spirit paintings, as well as slates by the famous Bangs sisters and the Campbell brothers, adorn the walls to add to this Victorian building’s atmosphere.
Museum highlights also include an extensive collection of Spiritualist newspapers, magazines and pamphlets that has been acclaimed as the foremost research source of early Spiritualism and its pioneers.
Any donations received will help expand and maintain our Museum and are tax deductible. Checks can be made out to the Lily Dale Assembly Museum.
