About the Event

A fundraiser for the Woman's Day Event Committee.

Lily Dale Assembly and Woman’s Day Committee member Deborah Peiffer will host an online discussion about the Fox sisters with Tracy Murphy. Tracy is the Historian and Caretaker of the Fox Sister’s property and Deputy Director at Historic Palmyra’s 5 museums. Tracy will tell the story of Maggie and Kate Fox, sisters from the original Hydesville Rappings in 1848, to their worldwide fame, to their subsequent fall from favor. If weather permits we will be at the Fox property where the original foundation still exists. The Fox Cottage was moved to Lily Dale, where it was destroyed by a fire. A replica cottage was reconstructed on the original foundation in Hydesville and that too was destroyed in a fire.
