We had never heard of
Cassadaga until one night when we were watching "The Harbingers" episode
of the TV show FreakyLinks.
With a little research we actually discovered a lot about
this real and unusual community.
The Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp is a community of
spiritually-minded people located in the Orlando/Daytona
Beach area of central Florida formed in 1895.
About twenty-five of the residents
are mediums who offer spiritual counseling from their homes. Designated a
Historic District on the National Register Of Historic
Places in 1991, it is the oldest active religious community
in the Southeastern United States.
Halloween in Cassadaga
better place to spend Halloween than in a haunted town? For
over a decade, Cassadaga was closed to the public on
Halloween, but now welcomes everyone. All ages are invited
to dare to journey beyond the gates of Cassadaga and
experience the "Haunted Walk".
Walk begins at the entrance of the town with ghoulish
escorts guiding you through a paranormal maze of shadowy
streets, shocking surprises and dark, sinister lanes, ending
at the renowned House on Haunted Hill.
Annual Boy Scouts Haunted House
Boy Scout Troop #590 puts on a Halloween Haunted House including
spirits from both the past and present! You're invited for a
night of frightfully good family fun at the Annual Haunted
The haunted grounds are located just west of Lake
Helen-Osteen Road (aka Prevatt Rd), and just east of
Pleasant Street in Lake Helen, very near Cassadaga. Be sure
you check current status before making any plans to
attend for Halloween.
