The Georgetown Spirit House was built in the 1860s by Timothy Brown, a farmer in Central New York State. He built it to be "consecrated to Spiritualism and to free speech in the service of humanity," following a design given him from the spirit world. For half a century the house served not only for Spiritualist activities but as a social center for the region and all its radical movements. Godwin describes its history and its unique architecture.
