Event Details

In the 1850s, New York City was absolutely agog for the tale of the three, young Fox sisters who claimed they heard mysterious knocking sounds that came from the spirits. (The oldest sister, Leah, and their parents, are interred at Green-Wood.) Later proven to be a hoax, the phenomenon sparked the popular and enduring movement of spiritualism. This walking tour will explore the legacies of Spiritualism and stage magic, which often came into conflict with each other. Visit the graves of many bizarre and fascinating practitioners of these two nineteenth-century phenomena.
 
$15 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $20 for non-members.
 
Comfortable shoes are recommended for this walking tour.
